Located on the Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, the town of Stornoway is the third largest town in the Scottish Highlands. It is an important port town and is connected to mainland Scotland by a ferry which sails from the harbour to Ullapool, on an average of two return crossings a day.
Unfortunately, sometimes ferry accidents can occur through no fault of the victim, but rather because appropriate health and safety measures were not put in place. Whether due to minor trips or falls on board or something more serious, accidents on ferries can be extremely dangerous.
