The Raasay is seen arriving at few minutes late at Kilchoan pier on this morning's 11.00am run from Tobermory. According to the CalMac website, every ferry is disrupted except the Mallaig-Lochboisedale.
The cargo ship Wilson Flushing has been anchored just to the northwest of Rubha nan Gall lighthouse since just before three this morning, perhaps waiting for better weather or with some sort of problem.
The strong southwesterly airstream has now started to bring in heavy showers, often of hail, with accompanying thunder and lightning. There were some impressive strikes yesterday afternoon, but we finally lost power some time around three this morning in a lightning strike which destroyed routers and cut telephone links to houses in Glenborrodale. The power came back on fairly quickly, but more gales are forecast for early evening and overnight.
