Cheap Ferry to Stornoway Port

Stornoway is a small fishing village 30 miles from the west coast of Scotland and is part of the Herbridean Islands, with its port providing a ferry link to mainland Britain. With Stornoway growing as a tourist destination so does the ferry route and services available.

Caledonian MacBrayne operate a daily service from Stornoway to Ullapool which is seasonal twice daily during the summer months. The near three hour crossing runs morning and afternoon with evening sailings on a Wednesday and Friday. Passengers are advised to be at the ferry terminal no later than 45 minutes prior to departure sailing.

The ferry has adequate space with nearly 1,000 passengers and around 125 cars and for the short journey there is an observation deck and a cafeteria and refreshment area on board. The ferry port has limited facilities but as it is placed centrally in the town there are adequate amenities close by including pubs, restaurants, banks, shops and guest houses. It is located in the centre of the town of Stornoway and partially encircles the harbour.

There is a reasonable road network that serves the Island of Lewis with Stornoway being more or less a focal point and the ferry port being well signposted. The terminal itself is located just beyond the bus station and a short walk from the town centre. There is a bus route serving Stornoway with the other towns on the island and also the Isles of Harris and Tarbet. The airport is around five miles from the town centre.

There is parking facilities near the town centre which can be quite limited especially during the peak season. Passengers with special needs are well catered for with wheelchair access and disabled assistance and are advised to contact the ferry port and operator prior to arrival if special assistance is required.
