Following the grounding of the 'MV Alfred', Pentland Ferries has re-introduced its sister ship, 'MV Pentalina', on its route. The vessel returned to service at 0745 on Thursday 21 July.
NorthLink Ferries has also introduced additional evening sailings between Scrabster and Stromness, with the extra crossings in place until Tuesday 26 July. You can view the new timetables on the NorthLink Ferries website. These sailings are now available to book online.
The terminal building in Stromness will be open earlier for passengers travelling in on the 19.18hrs bus from Kirkwall, to give passengers somewhere to wait before the new 21.15hrs sailing from Stromness.
Stagecoach will provide a bus to meet the 01:00hrs arrival from Scrabster, taking folk through to Kirkwall. The bus will be marked X10.
