Tankers galore!

Recently around the Gulberwick and Quarff anchorage south of lerwick activity has been high.

Along with the usual visitors Petronordic & Petroatlantic on their frequent shuttle runs between the Foinaven oil field and Rotterdam, the anchorage has also seen visits from the British Hazel (pictured above far left), and Hanne Knutsen, (second from left).

Ferrying out supplies and crew to the tankers has kept the Lerwick harbour tugs busy of late, which all adds up to business for Shetland as a whole.

In the foreground is Gulberwick voe, with the island of Mousa in the far distance.
