MV Loch Seaforth

MV Loch Seaforth


MV Loch Seaforth

Built for the crossing between Ullapool and Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, MV Loch Seaforth, Loch Siophort in Gaelic, is designed to be a greener, quieter ferry. She's not the first vessel to take that name - the original MV Loch Seaforth linked Stornoway with Mallaig and Kyle of Lochalsh from 1947 until 1972. The new vessel was christened in 2014 by Joan Murray, daughter of the late Captain John Smith of the original MV Loch Seaforth.

On Board Facilities


Food and Drink - As a result of the latest Scottish Government restrictions from Friday 8 January 2021, the food, drink and retail offer on board our vessels will change. We will be providing a selection of hot snacks, soups and sandwiches as well as hot and cold drinks on a number of our longer routes. Our menu will be more limited than in 'normal' circumstances while we continue to manage the health and safety mitigations in place to help keep our passengers, crew and the islands we serve safe.
