The local committee for Mod nan Eilean Siar 2016 along with Caledonian MacBrayne, Police Scotland and the Stornoway Port Authority are encouraging Mod travellers to make bus and ferry bookings ahead of time.

Norman MacDonald, Chair of the local committee said: “We are delighted that so many people are coming to visit the Western Isles for The National Mod in October. “Although the event is still about six weeks away, Ullapool to Stornoway and other ferry services will be at full capacity and we are keen to avoid unnecessary congestion and delays. We would urge passengers travelling by car and by foot, to make sure they make bookings well in advance.”
