Relaxation of rules around passengers in cars

Due to the Covid-19 situation the Maritime and Coastguard Agency have agreed to temporarily relax its rules on passengers being able to stay in their vehicles during some ferry journeys.

For CalMac's fleet this means that passengers can now stay in their cars when travelling from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay and across the Sound of Harris, on a limited number of sailings. Any passengers wishing to travel this way on these routes should check for eligible sailings.

'There has been some demand from passengers wishing to remain isolated in their cars while travelling with us. This change allows us to open up two more routes to this option of travel,' said CalMac's Director of Operations, Robert Morrison.

The change does not affect any of CalMac's larger vessels where passengers are not permitted to remain in their vehicles.
