A large fleet of Tall Ships will arrive in Stornoway Harbour on July 14 marking the start of a jam packed weekend of celebrations.

This includes the 2,385 tonne Russian sailing ship, The Mir, carrying nearly 200 crew and the Polish training ship Dar Mlodziezy which is more than 100 metres long and carries over 170 onboard.

Along with The Pelican, The Europa, The Lord Nelson (which visited Stornoway last year for the Centenary of Girlguiding), there will be over 1,000 crew and trainees visiting the town over the weekend.
