En-route and unable to get to fishing grounds off Norway due to mountainous seas battering the Western Isles, this pair of Irish Trawlers were forced to find shelter in Stornoway this week.

They also had to land a 30 year old crewman who had sustained injuries from a knife. The crewman – who is due to get married on his return to Ireland – was detailed after treatment overnight in Western Isles Hospital before being discharged into the care of Stornoway Fishermen’s Mission.
