The two Argyll Ferries boats on the Gourock-Dunoon route are shortly to go in for their annual winter refits.
Argyll Ferries customers are therefore advised that the service will be reduced to a single-vessel hourly service over a two week period from Monday 5th November to Saturday 17th November, (inclusive) while the boats are in refit.
Copies of the revised timetable are published on posters at each port and here on the Argyll Ferries website.
All ferry travellers are advised in advance that, because of the reduced timetable, the very late sailings on the two Friday and Saturday nights in this period – 9th and 10th November and 16th and 17th November – will not operate.
An Argyll Ferries spokesman says: ‘The annual refits, which are covered under the operating contract, are an essential part of the ships’ preparation for winter and vital to maintain technical reliability. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.’
