A BREAKDOWN has sparked the further cancellation of some sailings of the Ullapool-Stornoway ferry.

The overnight freight sailings between Wester Ross and Lewis were cancelled and this morning's sailings from Stornoway at 7am and from Ullapool at 10.30am have also been called off.

And, at the time of writing, uncertainty still hung over later planned sailings on Thursday.

Ferry passengers have been urged to check the CalMac website for updates.

"We have attempted a repair on the technical issue yesterday, but due to weather conditions it has so far not been possible to carry this out," said a CalMac spokesman.

"We will continue to work on the issue today when weather allows, and will provide an update on the 2pm from Stornoway and 5.30pm from Ullapool at approximately 11am today.
