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.
