Ferry relocation

As of next week, the Stornoway to Ullapool ferry, MV Isle of Lewis, will dock at number 1 pier in Stornoway. This is due to essential maintenance work being carried out on number 3 pier, where the ferry normally docks.

Passengers, on foot and in vehicles, should note that ticket sales and vehicle check-in will still take place at the ferry terminal on number 3 pier. Foot passengers will be transferred to the old pier by coach for embarkation; vehicle drivers will be required to proceed there themselves.

Number 1 pier is located a few hundred yards west of number 3 pier. After check-in, drivers need to turn left upon leaving the marshalling area and proceed down Shell Street past the gas tanks. Ahead over the roundabout and down South Beach Street. They should NOT turn right into Castle Street, but instead carry on in front of the Caledonian Hotel. Number 1 pier has the distinctive, beige coloured Maritime Buildings on it, and was used until 1997 for ferry embarkation.
