Due to forecasted weather conditions and sea states this week, the sea run to Bernera scheduled to take place today, Thursday October 29, will now go ahead on Thursday November 5.

The aim of the run, via sea from Uigen Slipway, Uig to Valasay Slipway and Great Bernera, is to enable the topping up of oil and gas supplies in preparation for winter, and also to test this sea route should it be necessary to deploy again at short notice.
