If you're there on a Saturday you will be able to see the Aurigny Trislander. Nothing big but quite special to see that far north.

Is the Trislander there every Saturday, and is that the only day it does operate to MSE?

Yes only a Saturday. Charter from JER. Might be a Shorts or a Trislander. I know Glouster is a Shorts so I can't confirm.
