Service updates

Thursday 15th April to 25th April

Due to a major failure of the port engine with MV Loch Seaforth, the vessel requires substantial repairs and she has been removed from service and will be taken to dock as soon as possible.

It is expected that the vessel will be out of service until at least the end of April to allow the engine issue to be thoroughly investigated and repaired.

As a result, MV Isle of Lewis has been deployed and the following timetable will be in operation: View timetable here
