This is one of the busiest route and the crossing takes approximately 2hours 45mins, running 7 days a week. In the summer there are 2 crossings a day, there and back, sometimes 3 depending on the day of the week.

You can travel down from Stornoway down through the chain of islands and cross to the mainland using Caledonian Macbrayne Hopscotch tickets, which give you various options. If you are not such a good sailor, a shorter route accross the sea would be to cross via Uig, Skye to Tarbert, Harris taking approximately 1 hour 40 minutes and then drive or take the bus from Tarbert to your destination.

The Ullapool ferry terminal is within walking distance to the village, where there are shops and cafes and the bus awaits the ferry on the pier.

If you are taking a car, you are advised to book early as the ferry can be very busy, particularly in the summer season. The drive from Inverness takes approximately 1hour 15 mins. You are required to be at the ferry terminal at least 45mins prior to departure.

It is also advisable to check the ferry service status, as ferries can be delayed or cancelled due to adverse weather.
