Supplementary information

The Wemyss Bay disabled passenger lift is currently out of action. Any customers requiring assistance should contact a member of staff at least 20 minutes before sailing, who will then assist as required.We will update as soon as more information becomes available. 

Bute Highland Games

The Highland Games will take place on the Isle of Bute on Saturday 24th August so the traffic travelling from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay on Friday 23rd will increase significantly and queuing times at Wemyss Bay will be very long. To avoid this waiting time please consider using the alternative route on to the island from Colintraive to Rhubodach which is only a 3 minute crossing time and runs every 30 minutes.
