Comment posted With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay by Nigel Macleod.

Not correct. MV Isle of Lewis has taken over the Ullapool-Stornoway service this afternoon (Sat-22) with the 1530hrs departure from Stornoway. MV Loch Seaforth had taken the extra sailing frpom Stornoway to help with the MOD traffic. MV Hebridean Isles is heading to Stornoway to take over the freight service whist Loch Seaforth is away for drydocking (she has a greater weight capacity than the MV Isle of Arran).MV Isle of Arran will take the Oban-Castlebay service if the currebt sea trials are successful. MV Lord of the Isles is due to drydock as soon as the summer timetable is finished so she will be heading off Sun evening/Monday.

  • I can’t agree with your last paragraph – MV Isle of Mull can’t take dangerous goods and passengers due to her enclosed car deck ; MV Coruisk’s certificate restricts her to a short distance from shore and cannot operate in the hours of darkness.
