In another plot twist in the never-ending CalMac ferry saga, the MV Hebridean Isles fits the new pier at Uig, after all.

Successful berthing trials were carried out yesterday, so CalMac scrapped the planned Lochboisdale to Ullapool service, and the ferry will now sail to Skye instead starting today (Monday, February 19).

The new service will operate as follows:

Depart Lochboisdale 0900
Arrive Uig- 1230

Depart Uig- 1300
Arrive Lochboisdale 1630

Freight is being prioritised.
