Campervans/Motorhomes - At the request of Argyll & Bute Council, we have been asked to advise our customers, at time of booking a campervan/motorhome to Islay, that they are required to secure a pitch for their vehicle on the island in advance of travelling. Please ensure you have agreed overnight provisions prior to travel to the islands.

Prior to your journey, familiarise yourself with VisitScotland's  #RespectProtectEnjoy guidance and check the arrangements individual islands and locations have for managing the safety of their visitors and communities. For Argyll and Bute, please read through the area's 'Be a great Visitor'  guidance.  

Scotland has now moved beyond Level 0 of Scottish Government COVID19 protection levels. In terms of ferry travel, many safety mitigations remain in place and face-coverings in our ports, offices, and indoor areas of our vessels are mandatory - unless exempt. Please ensure you take the time to read all our latest travel guidelines and safety information prior to your journey.

An accessible version of this timetable will be available shortly.
