Gazette Letters - Sunday ferry anniversary

editorial image

Sunday 21st July 2019, exactly 10 years from the commencement of Sunday ferries saw 3 fully booked sailings depart Stornoway for Ullapool.

“No demand” was the watchword of the anti-Sunday ferry campaign from 2007-9.

Ten years later, Western Isles tourism is flourishing with weekend car access, which hopefully has also stemmed somewhat the decades-long young people’s post-education migration from Harris/Lewis?
