Lerwick Port Authority has welcomed the UK/Scottish Governments' £100 million Islands Deal for Shetland, Orkney and Western Isles.

Captain Calum Grains, Lerwick Port Authority Chief Executive, said: “Signing of the Deal is a major step forward, with huge potential for the three island groups, all-the-more so during the rebuilding from the Covid-19 pandemic.
