To enable a party of children and their supervisors travelling from Kirkwall airport to join the last Westray sailing from Kirkwall on Wednesday 1st July, the 1620hrs departure will be delayed until 17:00 from Kirkwall and 18:35 from Westray.
In the absence of the Golden Mariana the Westray (Pierowall) to Papa Westray route continues to be covered by MV Kirkwall Bay, which has a passenger capacity of only 10. Passengers are therefore advised that it is essential to book for this service. Passengers travelling from Kirkwall should indicate to the ship that they wish to link in with the feeder service to Papa Westray, and similarly on their return from Papa Westray. If demand exceeds capacity on the scheduled timetable, the company will endeavour to put on additional sailings if possible. Please contact Tommy Rendall on 01857 677216 for local bookings and sailing information.
Until the M.V. Graemsay returns to service an alternative vessel, The Flamborough Light, with maximum lift of 1 tonne, will operate a cargo run to Graemsay on Tuesdays at 13:00hrs until further notice.
