Tuesday 1st June:
To start off the month, we launched our new TV advert made in collaboration with Stephen Mercer Productions. The advert is called Onward, Voyager to Orkney and Shetland and will be airing on STV.

The advert is all about welcoming customers back onboard with the easing of restrictions and encouraging people to get out and explore again.

A lovely family having fun on our puffin hunt at St Ninian’s Isle

Saturday 5th June:
To encourage people to get out and experience the wonderful outdoors, we hosted a NorthLink Puffin hunt! Our marketing officer, Cheryl Kelday, took a wander to the glorious St Ninians Isle in Shetland and hid 12 puffins.

We challenged our customers to come and find them (and they could even take one home!). All 12 puffins were found within 48 hours, and we received some lovely photos of families who had taken part – we really enjoyed seeing the happy winners!
