View across the Outer Harbour of Stornoway

Saturday 17 January

After an early breakfast, headed for the bus station. The Ullapool bus left at 8.10 sharp, following an explanation by the driver about facilities on board. It soon got very snowy, particularly west of Loch Glascarnoch. A minor blizzard gave us a taste of things wintry. At Ullapool, the ferry was just arriving, so we did not have to wait long to go on board. I esconced myself in the observation lounge, and soon enjoyed the views down Loch Broom and across the Minch. It did get a little choppy after an encounter with the new ferry Loch Seaforth, but the snow clad hills of the island made up for all of that. Arrived into Stornoway at 1.15pm, and had to drag the case through about half an inch of hail and snow on the ground.
