ATLANTIC FERRIES
Atlantic Ferries operates a ferry service between the island of Foula and the mainland of Shetland. The most westerly of the Shetland Islands, Foula is around 20 miles from Walls on the Shetland mainland. The peace, tranquillity and shear drama of the landscape makes Foula unique - a island that is considered the most remote of the British Isles.
The service runs twice weekly with an additional sailing in the summer - all however, subject to the current weather and sea conditions.
The ferry on the route is the NEW ADVANCE, carrying up to 12 passengers and making the journey in two hours. Ham has a special lift to clear the ferry from the sea in states of stormy weather or for repairs.
