MV Isle of Arran’s Sunday afternoon excursions to Campbeltown have proved popular with enthusiasts in recent summers. Her 2019 season of trips to the Kintyre port is due to run until 29 September.
The Sunday afternoon crossing from Ardrossan to Campbeltown and back offers excursionists one of the best chances to savour the vistas of the lower Firth, with Arran, Pladda, Ailsa Craig and Davaar Island all within range, plus of course Campbeltown Loch itself.
The cruise is non-landing, but there is usually plenty of quayside activity to watch from the deck during the vessel’s brief stopover at the Kintyre port.
