FERRY sailings have been cancelled in and out of Ullapool once again amid continued rough seas in The Minch.

CalMac has confirmed the cancellation of all of Tuesday's sailings between the Ross-shire port and Stornoway.

And it has warned that Wednesday's 7am departure from Stornoway to Ullapool is also at risk. A review was due to be carried out at the time of writing (12.30pm).

It has urged any passengers to check its website for the latest updates before travelling. Visit www.calmac.co.uk for details.

The latest cancellations follow similar disruption on Monday, when yellow weather warnings for strong winds and snow were in effect over much of northern Scotland.

Another yellow warning for snow is also expected to come into force from 7pm tonight. It will cover virtually all of Ross-shire, as well as large swatches of the wider Highland area.
