Ferry sail­ings poised to in­crease

- Travel · Scottish Government

Ad­di­tional ferry sail­ings will be­gin to be in­tro­duced from next week on CalMac’s west coast net­work.

Trans­port Scot­land, the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s trans­port arm, has con­firmed that new timeta­bles will come into force on July 1.

Tourism is pre­par­ing to re­open in midJuly al­low­ing peo­ple the free­dom to travel long dis­tances within Scot­land and stay sev­eral nights away from home. For the next four weeks, only is­lan­ders in the new ex­tended house­hold cat­e­gory can use fer­ries for non-es­sen­tial rea­sons.

Adults who live alone and sin­gle par­ents can travel by sea routes be­tween the is­lands and the main­land to join up with an­other house­hold.
