Northlink Ferries has announced changes to its services to allow for those visiting family from Aberdeen.
Following the Scottish Government briefing yesterday, the First Minister emphasised there are still significant restrictions on travel to prevent the spread of the virus.
As part of Scotland’s phase two, travel should be within five miles of your home, and that travel to and from the Scottish Islands is not permitted for recreational purposes.
NorthLink Ferries announced today it will restrict its journeys for essential travel, key workers, and for those visiting family.
In a statement online, it said: “We would ask that all travellers consider whether they are adhering to the spirit of the Government guidelines.
