MV Hebrides is normally found sailing from Uig on Skye to Tarbert and Lochmaddy and rarely sailed anywhere else in her early service life. One notable exception was during closure of the Uig linkspan, when she sailed from Ullapool for a period of a week or so. At the time she was in company with Clansman which was relieving on the Ullapool crossing. During the spring of 2007 the ship was converted to burn oil and was trialed on the Oban to Coll, Tiree and Barra and South Uist services. Her sister, Clansman soon arrived back and Hebrides spent another 5 years never deviating from her route except when she required an annual overhaul which was usually done either in Greenock, Aberdeen, Leith or Birkenhead.
In December 2012, Hebrides relieved Isle of Mull on the Oban to Craignure and Colonsay services, as well as running extra services to Coll, Tiree, Barra and South Uist over the festive season. She was replaced at Uig by Finlaggan.
In January 2013, she relieved Caledonian Isles on the Ardrossan to Brodick service, and in February will relieve Isle of Lewis on the Ullapool to Stornoway service. She is expected to relieve the Clansman on the Outer Isles services in March, before finally returning to the Uig to Lochmaddy and Tarbert services once the summer timetable starts in March 2013.

Famous quotes containing the word service:
“Our chief want in life, is, someone who shall make us do what we can. This is the service of a friend. With him we are easily great.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Let the good service of well-deservers be never rewarded with loss. Let their thanks be such as may encourage more strivers for the like.”
—Elizabeth I (15331603)
“A mans real faith is never contained in his creed, nor is his creed an article of his faith. The last is never adopted. This it is that permits him to smile ever, and to live even as bravely as he does. And yet he clings anxiously to his creed, as to a straw, thinking that that does him good service because his sheet anchor does not drag.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
