August photo selection

Click any image to enlarge
A summer's day in Lerwick.

August has seen the start of the summer herring fishery with many visits so far by the new pelagic trawler Voyager seen above.

Liners were aplenty in August with one such visitor being the Athena seen berthed at Holmsgarth.

Lerwick Harbour two tugs are busy at most times of the year on various jobs, here Kebister heads for her berth after helping the Ocean Countess away from the pier.

Finally as September nears the work on the end of the Holmsgarth ferry pier near completion.

The outer mooring dolphin has been increased in size and height allowing bigger ferries in the future to berth safely. In the next part of improvements in time will see the installation of a new freight ramp replacing the old one which can be seen extreme left in photo.

Upgrades start for Lerwick's small boat harbour

Work has recently begun on the second phase of improvement works for Lerwick Harbour's small boat harbour.

The joint venture between Lerwick Port Authority and the Lerwick Boating Club will see the construction of a new and improved seawall along the shoreline, together with a widened walkway and seating area for locals and tourists alike to take in the views of the harbour.

Complimenting this will also see the old wooden decking replaced with a brand new and extended decking, which will improve safety for launching dinghies and other small craft.

The total investment for the works the first of which was finished last year comes in at around £650,000.

July photo round up.

Click any image to enlarge
The Halten Bank a French stern trawler was in port this week on a short visit.
Smaller liners up to 144 metres in length can use the town centre berth at Victoria Pier, illustrated by Swan Hellenic's Minerva viewed last week.

July has been the peak month for cruise ship visits...here Ocean Princess lies berthed at Holmsgarth on her way to Dover from New York via Greenland & Iceland.

AIDAaura on her fourth and final visit to Lerwick this summer.

A typical shipping scene in Lerwick has the regulars that ply our waters all year round, namely from (left to right): Daroja, Clare, Hjaltland.

To the far right work is nearing completion on the mooring dolphin which has been enlarged in size.

Finally the Norwegian passenger vessel Gann enjoys a summer's day in Lerwick.

Online Norway ferry petition launched

This week a local group of islanders have launched an online ferry petition asking for a direct link between Shetland and Norway to be reinstated.

Shetland has been without a link to Norway since Smiryl Line dropped Lerwick as a port of call some years ago despite a cash injection by the local council of some £4.2 Million causing widespread anger amongst local people.

Now the Scottish government is being asked to help fund a venture at a time when NorthLink the current operator is being asked to make savings in the region of a million pounds. The timing is not ideal and it would appear to be a long shot indeed for this to make any headway in the power corridors of Edinburgh.

P&O the last ferry operator before NorthLink ran a Saturday morning departure with the old St. Clair to Bergen arriving back on a Sunday afternoon, showing it could be possible to fit in an extra sailing to the current timetable, the only doubt is would it pay in the long run....watch further developments on this story.
