As we have been informing for some time now in our Today’s Travel Updates section, Argyll Ferries moves into a reduced service schedule tomorrow, 13th May, during the annual refit for the Argyll Flyer, one of the two passenger ferries serving the Gourock-Dunoon route.
Because of this essential and pre-planned two-week ship refit, the service will operate on a reduced timetable with hourly departures.
This will be the case, starting tomorrow, Monday 13th May and until Sunday 26th May.
Please also note: The 01:00 from Gourock and the 01:25 from Dunoon late sailings on 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th May will not operate.
Full service will resume on Monday 27th May 2013.
An Argyll Ferries spokesperson says that, in the case of any disruption to the MV Ali Cat, the company will activate the replacement bus service to transfer their passengers to their respective destinations of Gourock or Dunoon.
This service can only be accessed either at Gourock rail station or at the Dunoon linkspan near the pier.
The buses will take passengers to the relevant Western Ferries’ terminals at Hunter’s Quay on the outskirts of Dunoon or McInroy’s Point on the outskirts of Gourock, where they will be picked up by buses and taken, as appropriate, to the Gourock rail station or the Dunoon linkspan.
Details of this and of the amended timetable can be found on the Argyll Ferries website here.
