Despite similar forecast, Haltland is sailing tonight

Although the weather for tonight is expected to be much the same as last night, when there was no NorthLink passenger ferry and cargo ferry sailings to Lerwick, and the night before when there was such sailings, the Hjaltland is expected to leave Aberdeen this evening for an arrival in Lerwick tomorrow morning. The ro-ro cargoboat Helliar is also expected to sail from Aberdeen to Lerwick tonight. The passenger ferry Horssey, which arrived in Kirkwall from Aberdeen last night and cancelled the trip to Lerwick, has remained in Kirkwall all day today and it is to set off to Aberdeen at the scheduled time tonight.
