On the Western Isles, all ferries from Tarbert, Lochmaddy, Leverburgh, Eriskay and Castlebay are cancelled.

The ferry service between Lochboisdale and Oban is under review.

The ferries between Stornoway and Ullapool are not running during the day but the evening service from Ullapool is expected to leave.

Menahwile there is a Scottish Trunk Road Network - North West Unit - A835 Tarvie - Carriageway Resurfacing project warning for Thursday 14th March.

BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will be undertaking a series of pedestrian crossing improvement works on the A835 Trunk Road approximately 1 km north of Tarvie, between Contin and Ullapool.

The works are programmed for construction starting on Thursday 14th March, between the hours of 19:00 to 06:00.

The company says: “Unfortunately, due to the restricted road widths within this section we have no option but to close the carriageway in order to ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public.

“As there is no suitable diversion route the A835 will therefore be closed in both directions approximately 1 km north of Tarvie. 

“During periods of closure, amnesties at 9pm, 11pm, 1am and 4am will allow waiting vehicles to be escorted through the site.”
