Summer ferry sailings cancelled

Summer ferry links between Caithness, the Scandinavian mainland, Iceland and the Faroes have been axed by a ferry operator as part of savings.

Smyril Line has had to receive major funding from the Faroese government to help it tackle financial problems.

Its Scrabster and Norway sailings have been dropped.

Scrabster Harbour Trust manager Sandy MacKie said the service had been a success over the past two years and said its cancellation would be a blow.

Last month, the trust was welcoming plans to extend the summer service by two weeks.
