CalMac are warning passengers on some island services to travel today (Monday 10 February) if they can, or to defer their plans for travel until Wednesday, because of highly likely disruption during forecast high winds on Tuesday.

Services liable to disruption tomorrow include the Stornoway-Ullapool route and sailings between Uig, Tarbert and Lochmaddy, where CalMac say: “Due to the adverse weather forecast this service is at high risk of disruption or cancellation. Passengers intending to travel on Tuesday are advised to consider travelling on Monday 10 or Wednesday 12 February.”

Already cancelled is tomorrow’s service between Castlebay and Oban, which has also been suspended today.
