Route Details

One or more sailings are disrupted

Service updates

Until 25th October

MV Argyll Flyer remains off service, the contractors building and fitting her new propeller have carried out a review and have advised us that the vessel is now estimated to return to service on the 25th October at the earliest. 

The current single vessel timetable will therefore continue to operate until 25th October.

Timetable can be viewed here 

We realise that the loss of the MV Argyll Flyer has been disruptive, and we are sorry for this inconvenience.

Options for chartering an additional vessel for this route are being explored and, in the meantime, it will operate as a one-vessel service with the MV Ali Cat.

We are working hard to manage demand and will keep customers informed of any further updates. 

If you’ve not already done so, download our app or follow our Twitter @CalMac_Updates so we can provide you with timely updates, with the latest information we have available.
