Hebrides News


The MV Hebrides has resumed duties on the Tarbert and Lochmaddy routes.

The vessel spent the past fortnight in drydock in Greenock undergoing her annual refit.

The timetable suffered extensive cancellations and delays during her absence as strong winds and rough seas made berthing hazardous.

Shellfish exports from Uist as well as deliveries of incoming agricultural, food and general supplies plus daily newspapers were badly disrupted.

The two relief vessels covering the route have left.

The MV Isle of Arran is due her yearly overhaul on the Clyde while the Hebridean Isles returns to the busy Islay service.
