    The main car park at the south end of the town has no overnight signs but people just tend to ignore it as the police admit they turn a blind eye unless they get a call for a disturbance.
    We have used the car park several times. Usually at least 4 MHs parked up.

    Stornoway - not sure about the ferry terminal but tesco is just across the road, large car park, and plenty other places as well close by, shouldn't have any problem at all.
