Ferry operator, Caledonian MacBrayne, has now started a Sunday service from Tarbert on the Isle of Harris.   The Sunday ferry service is still a very controversial issue, with the Free Church and Lord’s day observance Society opposing its introduction .  It has to be said that the Sunday service is also still controversial with others not involved with the church, but it has been shown quite clearly on Lewis that this service was needed and has been extremely popular since its inception.   The Sunday ferry service also has the effect of linking Loch Maddy with Tarbert on Harris, ans allows visits to the communities over a weekend.  For better or worse, the Sunday service now exists, but hopefully won’t spoil the special Sunday atmosphere of  Lewis and Harris.
