The June-September edition of Scottish Ferry News, compiled by John Newth, is available here.
It covers all known movements by members of the CalMac fleet during the summer of 2020, starting on 1 June and continuing up to 30 September — a period marked by ongoing restrictions on travel to the islands. Previous editions of Scottish Ferry News can be found here.
This latest edition documents Caledonian Isles’ heroics on 3 September (the day of the Waverley breakdown), Loch Bhrusda’s spell on the Small Isles service, Carvoria’s annual overhaul at Barcaldine and Loch Linnhe’s wide-ranging peregrinations (Colintraive, Campbeltown, Gigha South Pier, Oban, Lismore, Kilchoan, Portavadie, Craighouse and Lochaline).
It also provides dates for the special livestock sailings from Colonsay given by Clansman and Finlaggan, the ‘support sailing’ to Tiree by Isle of Mull, the unique call at Brodick by Lochnevis, and the various weather disruptions suffered by Isle of Arran, as well as her dry-docking at Aberdeen. Plus plenty more.
CRSC’s Scottish Ferry News is an invaluable resource for enthusiasts wishing to track where vessels have been, what overhauls have taken place and which routes have been most affected by disruptions/service alterations.
Archived Newsletters issued in previous winter sessions may be found here.
CRSC is proud of the service it provides for all ship enthusiasts, but hopes anyone who is not yet a Club member will take advantage of our £10 introductory membership offer here.
