A fault with the Sound of Barra ferry resulted in cancelled and disrupted sailings.

The MV Loch Alainn was unable to carry out her first two voyages on the route.

Repairs were carried out and, following sea trials, the vessel passed as fit for service.

The timetable resumed at 11.40am from Ardmhòr

However, the evening sailing will be disrupted to allow for additional repair work. The ferry will depart Eriskay following a fast turnaround at 6.10pm.
