Islanders have called for compensation from the Scottish Government over cancelled ferries this summer. 

People living in communites linked by the lifeline routes say they have lost money as tourism and other sectors have been hit by the patchwork service, which has been hit by breakdowns on the ageing fleet. 

Local businesses on South Uist are estimating a loss of £50,000 a day, while people on Mull have called for £1.5 million compensation to be shared out after months of disruption. 

Is it time for the Scottish Government to take action? 

We want to know if you think islanders deserve compensation for the losses they say they have suffered due to disruption.
