Thursday 29 April to Monday 17 May*
The Ardrossan to Brodick service will operate a single vessel from 29 April until at least 17 May. (*This date is subject to change and we will continue to keep our customers updated throughout.)
The single vessel service will operate as a result of the second summer vessel (MV Isle of Arran) being redeployed temporarily to take over the freight service on Stornoway - Ullapool.
While Ardrossan - Brodick remains a one-vessel service, sailings on the Lochranza - Claonaig route have increased, doubling in capacity, offering an alternative to accessing Arran or the mainland. Please note all sailings on MV Caledonian Isles will operate as normal. View the amended timetable below.
The change to this service is in response to a major failure of the port engine with MV Loch Seaforth operating the Ullapool - Stornoway route. It is expected that the vessel will be out of service until at least 17 May to allow the engine issue to be thoroughly investigated and repaired. We know and understand the reduction of any service can be very challenging for our customers and the communities we serve, and we apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.
Planning ahead - Please remember that physical distancing means that our capacity is less than in 'normal' times - Plan ahead and book your ticket before travel - even if you're a foot passenger.
Please ensure you take the time to read all our latest travel guidelines and safety information prior to your journey. Customers are reminded to wear a face covering when travelling with us on the ferry, and at our port offices, unless exempt.
Food and Drink - From 26 April, we'll be increasing the food & drink options on offer to our customers. Find out what will be available on this route here.
Due to Covid-19, some train journeys may be temporarily suspended. Please check Scotrail website for the most up to date timetables prior to your journey.
