Ullapool (ULL) - Stornoway (STO)

One or more sailings are disrupted

Service updates

Monday 26 April to Friday 28 May*

As a result of ongoing repairs to the MV Loch Seaforth, investigations to repair the damage to one of the engine bearings have identified further issues to the engine crankshaft which will require attention before the vessel can return to service.

Specialist engineers have advised that the revised projected date of return of 21 May, has now had to be pushed back to 28 May at the earliest. *This date is subject to change, and we will continue to keep our customers updated throughout.

As a result, MV Isle of Lewis will continue to be deployed on this route and the following timetable will be in operation: View timetable here

Reservations for the period up to Friday 28 May, may be temporarily unavailable while we update our systems and prioritise assisting those customers affected by this change to reschedule their bookings.

We recognise the reduction of any service can be very challenging for our customers and the communities we serve and apologise for the disruption this will cause.

To stay informed, download our app or follow our Twitter @CalMac Updates so we can provide you with timely updates, with the latest information we have available. Alternatively, you can also sign up to our service status text updates.
