Service updates

Friday 10th November - Monday 11th December

Due to the ongoing technical issue on MV Loch Portain resulting in the vessel operating on 3 engines, there are weather limitations in place which are affecting service on Berneray - Leverburgh.

MV Alfred will support this service and operate daily between Tarbert and Lochmaddy to the following timetable.

Bookings for this service can be made across all channels - online, by telephone and at our port offices.
While this mitigation is in place, customers will pay the same fare between Tarbert-Lochmaddy as they would when travelling between Berneray-Leverburgh.

Please note MV Alfred has no catering facilities on board
