Passenger and freight sailings between Stornoway and Ullapool have been cancelled today (Monday October 22nd), due to forecast strong westerly winds.

Although the MV Isle of Lewis is making her morning run, and is expected to return to Stornoway at lunchtime, the 2.30pm sailing from Stornoway and the 6.15pm sailing from Ullapool have been cancelled.

Also cancelled are tonight’s freight services on the MV Hebridean Isles at 5pm from Stornoway, 9pm from Ullapool and early tomorrow morning in both directions.

There’s a risk of further disruption tomorrow (Tuesday) with the strong winds forecast to continue overnight and into the afternoon tomorrow.
