COWAL & DUNOON:

Gourock - Dunoon

One or more sailings are disrupted

Service updates

Until further notice

There is an ongoing technical issue with one of the hydraulic lifting cylinders at Gourock ferry terminal, which could prevent the cylinder from lifting the linkspan. Port owners Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd have taken a decision to close the linkspan until further notice, which means we need to use the Kilcreggan steps to board passengers. CMAL attended with their engineers on Wednesday 25th September and confirmed that the linkspan continues to be unsuitable for use in the short term, with a further review planned for medium term options.
The following amended timetable will be operating from/to the Gourock Boat Steps:
