Rough seas and winds up to 70mph will cause widespread disruption for Western Isles ferries on Wednesday.

A number of crossings are cancelled and vessels which are operating will only venture out after the stormy conditions ease later in the morning.

Sound of Barra sailings are suspended for the first part of the day with a review for later runs.

No ferry will operate on the Sound of Harris crossing in the morning with a review for the remainder of the day.

The Castlebay - Oban run and the Lochboisdale service are cancelled.

The MV Hebrides will remain berthed in Tarbert until 11am and operate a changed timetable on the Skye triangle route over the day. The morning Citylink bus from Glasgow will not connect direct with the Tarbert sailing.

Most sailings on the the Stornoway route are cancelled due to a heavy southerly swell. The MV Loch Seaforth will sail to Ullapool on her freight run on Tuesday night but will remain there until 5.30pm on Wednesday.
