A ferry had to return to harbour after an infant fell and was injured during a sailing between Stornoway and Ullapool.
CalMac confirmed that the MV Loch Seaforth turned back to Stornoway harbour following a medical emergency.
The ferry was about one and a half miles south of Arnish lighthouse when she changed course about 7.20pm on Sunday.
An ambulance was waiting for the child at number three pier in Stornoway. The vessel resumed her voyage to Ullapool at 7.55pm.
CalMac said the vessel was delayed by a “medical emergency”.
A spokesman for the company said the 17-month old child fell and banged their head on an outside deck.
He said: “They returned to the port where the child was taken to hospital for checks and was subsequently discharged.”
The Loch Seaforth was one of many Western Isles ferries disrupted by a gale and rough seas on Sunday.
However the CalMac spokesman said the incident on the Loch Seaforth was not weather related.
Some services yesterday were running late due to the knock-on effect of the delays.
And there were more delays due to a faulty linkspan at Oban yesterday.
It meant that the MV Isle of Lewis was unable to discharge all of its traffic, causing delays to the 1.30pm sailing from Oban to Castlebay.
The CalMac spokesman said: “Due to the issue with the linkspan at Oban, MV Isle of Lewis cannot fully discharge all traffic. Attempts to repair have been unsuccessful and specialist engineers are travelling to Oban.”
The Isle of Lewis went to Craignure on Mull to discharge the traffic, arriving at 5pm. It then stood off in the Sound of Mull, allowing MV Clansman to arrive in from Oban and discharge the delayed 1.30pm Castlebay traffic.
The Clansman left Craignure at 6.15pm and was due to arrive in Castlebay at 11pm last night.
In order to get the Barra traffic to and from Craignure MV Clansman operated a relief sailing between Oban and Craignure.
Today (tue) there could be some disruption on routes to between Mull and Iona, Mallaig and Armadale, and Mallaig and Lochboisdale, due to adverse weather which was forecast.
CalMac apologised for any inconvenience caused.
