FERRY passengers have been warned that stormy weather could disrupt sailings on the Ullapool-Stornoway crossing tomorrow afternoon onwards.
CalMac said its 5.30pm Wednesday service departing Ullapool is "liable to disruption or cancellation at short notice".
The same warning applies to its overnight freight-only sailings out of Stornoway at 10.30pm on Wednesday and out of Ullapool at 3am on Thursday.
The 7am Thursday passenger sailing departing Stornoway may also be affected.
The warnings come amid a highly changeable weather forecast, with a Met Office yellow warning for heavy rain currently in force across much of Ross-shire, and expected to remain in place until 3pm on Wednesday.
The wind is then expected to change to a blustery northerly from Wednesday onwards, bringing rougher conditions at sea.
