MV Isle of Lewis.

The MV Isle Lewis has successfully completed trials and departed from Ullapool at 3am this morning to resume the timetable service from Stornoway as normal.

On Wednesday the ferry experienced technical problems while travelling from Stornoway to Ullapool.

Additional sailing were put in place from Tarbert to Uig, with buses taking foot passengers to Skye to catch the ferry, and from Tarbet to Stornoway while the vessel was out of action.

CalMac thank passengers for their patience and apologise for all inconvenience caused throughout the disruption.
