The Hebrides is a roro ferry that is currently owned and operated by the Scottish ferry company Caledonian MacBrayne. She was built in 2000 by Ferguson Shipbuilders, Glasgow for the company where she began service on the route that links Uig with Tarbert and Lochmaddy, a route commonly known as the 'Uig Triangle'. Upon her entry into service, she replaced her predecessor, the Hebridean Isles. Her facilities include a reception area, bars, a shop, a lounge, a restaurant and an outer deck area accessible to passengers. On the upper deck, there is a passenger observation lounge. The Hebrides is one of the larger vessels in the Caledonian MacBrayne fleet, at a length of 99 metres. She has the ability to accommodate approximately 600 passengers and can carry just under 100 vehicles. The Hebrides has one almost identical sister ship, the Clansman, which operates from Oban to the Inner Hebrides. Her current port of registry is Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom.
