About Stornoway Ferry
Stornoway is the largest town in Scotland's Western Isles, a.k.a. the Outer Hebrides. The Stornoway ferry port has cargo facilities,
a fishing fleet, and a terminal for Caledonian MacBrayne ferries between the Isle of Lewis and the village of Ullapool on the Scottish mainland.
The fishing port of Stornoway, the only town in the Outer Hebrides, is the islands' commercial centre and offers more services and facilities
than you might expect in any town of comparable size. It has an excellent range of banks, shops, hotels, guesthouses, pubs and restaurants,
garages, sports facilities, an airport and ferry terminal.
The port is at the heart of the town, in fact the shape of the town is defined by the harbour, which partially encircles it. A good place for cheap snacks and light lunches is the cafe at the Ann Lanntair Gallery. A number of the streets in the centre are pedestrianised, which provides good access to an interesting range of shops. You will find the tourist information centre located at 26 Cromwell St. There are also two large supermarkets on hand, Safeway is beside the ferry terminal and the Co-op is by the first roundabout on the road out to Barabhas.
Stornoway has a reasonable road network serving various destinations around the island, while onward transit to the mainland is available by ferry. The road network converges in Stornoway, the main centre of commerce on the islands. Directions to the port are well-signposted from around the town.
Buses depart from Stornoway to all parts of the island and also to Tarbert and Leverburgh on Harris, however buses do not run on Sunday. Stornoway is the island's transport fulcrum, with the airport just 4 miles east of the town centre - a �5 taxi ride away.
The town is compact and most of what you will require is within easy walking distance of the tourist office. Some of the B&Bs in the residential areas are located quite a distance from the centre, but there's an hourly town bus service, or you may hire a taxi from Central Cabs. Once at the port you will find a limited amount of parking in the area.
The main route to the north end of the Western Isles is by car ferry linking Ullapool with Stornoway. Caledonian MacBrayne operates ferry services from Stornoway to Ullapool, with a journey time of 2 hours and 40 minutes. Ferries operate twice daily Mondays through Saturdays, with no ferry service on Sundays. Departure times vary during high and low season. Passengers can check-in 30 minutes prior to departure and vehicles need to check-in 45 minutes prior to departure. The CalMac ferry terminal is located just beyond the bus station, which is on South Beach, a short walk from the town centre.
The ferry used on the Stornoway to Ullapool ferry crossing is the "Isle of Lewis". This is the largest ship in the CalMac fleet and it was built on the Clyde in 1995. The Isle of Lewis is capable of carrying up to 970 passengers and 123 cars. The interior is well appointed and spacious, with a large cafeteria and an observation lounge that comes complete with a display screen showing the ship's position. The Isle of Lewis is especially well served by deck areas available to passengers. This includes a large rear deck complete with a considerable number of seats. Although much of the route crosses the Minch, the deck areas afford really excellent views of Lewis at one end of the crossing and the North West Highlands at the other. Disabled passengers are catered for aboard the ferry by the helpful crew, though passengers are advised to inform staff of any special needs when making their reservation.
Caledonian MacBrayne serve 22 islands and 4 peninsulas spread over the West Coast of Scotland, each with their own unique qualities and features: Arran, Barra, Coll, Colonsay, Harris, Islay, Lewis, Mull, North Uist, Skye, South Uist, Tiree.
