Five Ferries Hopper - Saturday 12th October

You are invited to join us on Saturday 12th October for an Autumn Five Ferries Hopper to the Isle of Islay. The trip will involve travelling on 5 ferries to 2 islands, 2 peninsulas and using a coach to do so. Departing from the car park of Gourock Train Station at 0815, we will travel by coach to Wemyss Bay for the connection to Rothesay and onwards to Colintraive via Rhubodach. A pleasant journey around Loch Riddon and across Cowal takes us to the ferry terminal at Portavadie for onwards travel to Tarbert. After a short drive to Kennacraig, MV FINLAGGAN will take us to Port Askaig (Islay) at 1300.
