Operated by Noble Caledonia, the small MS Island Sky berthed at Lerwick’s Victoria Pier with 66 passengers on board, half the capacity of the vessel, which is on a full circumnavigation of the UK.

Scottish ports have reopened for cruise ships on UK-only sailings, carrying UK passengers.

Covid measures are in place to protect everyone involved during visits, complementing the comprehensive steps taken by cruise operators.
