Transport Considerations When Moving To Fetlar

You should note that Northlink Ferries (the company which operates the ferry service between Aberdeen and Lerwick) will only carry trucks if they have 'strong points' that can be used for lashings. Please contact Northlink Ferries, and be sure to check with your removal company that their vehicles comply with these conditions if intending to sail North.
