Summer Ferry Timetable Brought Forward

Due to the Papa Stour Air Service being suspended until new drains have been put in and other work carried out on the airstrip the Summer Ferry Timetable has been brought forward with immediate effect. There will therefore be Saturday evening sailings from now until the start of the winter timetable in the autumn as follows;

Saturday Evening;

Departure West Burrafirth 1800 hours arriving Papa Stour 1835 hours.

Departure Papa Stour 1845 hours arriving West Burrafirth 1920 hours.

For complete ferry timetable please go to Transport page on this blog.

When work has been completed on the Papa Stour Airstrip, which at present is severely waterlogged and therefore unsafe for use, the normal Tuesday Air Service will resume.

Croft back on the market

Sale of Hurdiback Croft has fallen through and is therefore back on the market.

Ideal property for young, enthusiastic and hardworking family interested in crofting and land mangement.

House and outbuildings in need of some renovation. Very good agicultural land.

Recommend visiting Papa Stour and view property before making any decision to purchase.

For advice on crofting responsibilities/ law advise contacting  the Crofting Commission.
