A model of Cal Mac’s much-loved MV Hebrides - the familiar vessel which serves the
North Uist and Harris has been presented to the ferry office in Lochmaddy.
It previously made her home in Gourock at the company’s HQ.
The model is quite large at more than a metre long and nearly half a metre in height
and has taken pride of place on loan among the many Cal Mac artefacts already on
show as part of an exhibition, mounted by port assistant John Macdonald.
Mr Macdonald, who is delighted with the new addition to the port, said: “It’s absolutely
great to see the model here in Lochmaddy right beside the pier where her much bigger
sister calls in.
“We’re really proud to have her here and I’m sure that loads of people from the island,
as well as visitors coming through the port, will enjoy seeing her.”
His exhibition at the Lochmaddy port office which show cases his extensive collection
of CalMac artefacts, has been changing and growing for about two years and is a
very popular feature for both locals and tourists alike.
