The Barra ferry is sailing in the middle of the night to avoid running into a force eight gale.

With a worsening forecast over Tuesday the MV Isle of Lewis will depart Castlebay five hours earlier than usual in order to make it back before the peak of the storng south westerly winds.

The vessel departs Castlebay at 3am and will carry out a fast turnaround at Oban.

Cal Mac said these sailings remain liable to disruption or cancellation at short notice.
