Funny ferries

We love our Shetland Traffic News and Advice which tells us what is going on in the isles with a dash of humour!

The Facebook site posts occasionally and this one is a heads-up for the Unst Show which is happening this weekend. Thanks guys! You made us giggle...


Chaos on the Unst ferry this evening as a ram and a cock have escaped from a trailer headed for the Unst Show. The Ferry cannot dock at Bluemull until both animals are recaptured. They are running amuck in between vehicles on board the MV Fivla.

There is a concern, particularly over the prize cock, to make sure this captured again as it is odds on favourite to win the best cock award for the seventh year running.

This will have a knock on effect on the Bluemull Sound timetable this evening, please check the Shetland Ferry Facebook page for updates."
