CalMac has re-arranged today’s ferry timetable (Thursday 13 February) to get stock to Barra’s shops before the next storm blows in.

An amended timetable between Oban and Castlebay will see a 5pm sailing from Oban, according to CalMac, “in order to allow for essential supplies to reach the island.”

MV Isle of Lewis is due to reach Castlebay at 10.30pm.

An additional sailing is also running today between Oban and Lochboisdale, to compensate for missed services during recent storm weather.
