Continuing wild weather is set to affect both freight and passenger ferry services between Stornoway and Ullapool in the next 24 hours (Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th October).

The freight service on the Hebridean Isles, which was expected to resume at 5pm today, is now delayed to 9pm this evening, returning from Ullapool tomorrow morning at approximately 1.30am.

As a result there’ll be no second run across the Minch for freight, with the 1am from Stornoway and 5pm from Ullapool both cancelled.

The weather is also set to hit passenger services on the Isle of Lewis, with a yellow warning of disruption or cancellation on the 1430 sailing from Stornoway and the 1815 sailing from Ullapool for tomorrow (Thursday 24th October).
