Welcome to the WITPG website, which is dedicated to recording and preserving the rich and fascinating transport history of the Western Isles of Scotland. Over the course of the 20th century, motor transport; ferry and air services; commercial plant; operators and contracting businesses have all changed enormously in the Western Isles.
This website aims to capture some of this history and present it here for the benefit of future generations of Hebrideans and all others with an interest in Britain’s motoring heritage.
The Western Isles Transport Preservation Group (WITPG) is a voluntary run charitable organisation made up of commercial vehicle enthusiasts.
The aims of the Group are:
- To record and promote the transport history of the Outer Hebrides;
- To organise related events and activities; and,
- Where possible, to restore vehicles of historical importance to the isles.
