The arrival of Storm Brendan has forced ferry operator CalMac to cancel services across Argyll and the Isles.

Services cancelled for the day include Tarbert – Portavadie; Tarbert – Lochranza; Kennacraig – Port Askaig and Kennacraig – Port Ellen; Tayinloan – Gigha; and Colintraive – Rhubodach.

Along with wind speeds around 60mph, exceptionally high tides were anticipated around the Argyll coastline.
