Award winning operator 

This year has seen CalMac add to its long list of industry awards for excellence.

At VisitScotland's annual Thistle Awards, the company took top spot in the Working Together for Tourism category.

Recognised as Scotland's travel and tourism Oscars, the annual Thistle Awards bring together businesses from across the nation who have shown excellence, innovation and commitment in the tourism sector.

CalMac beat off competition from ScotRail, Aberdeen Art Gallery and the National Trust for Scotland to take the award.

The ferry operator was also successful at the Travel Marketing Awards where it won Digital Marketing Campaign of the Year.

'We work tirelessly with partners across our whole area to help make the most of visitor experiences in this stunning area of Scotland,' said Commercial Director Graeme MacFarlan.

'We will continue to try new things and to work closely with the many people on the islands who both rely on our ferries to bring their customers to them, but also collaborate with us to offer the best deals and information so that we can, in turn, give our passengers the best experience and guidance possible.'

'We recognise the importance of digital business and continue to make it easier for customers to plan and travel with us using this channel. For example, our multi modal journey planner has attracted over 44,000 visits since launching in early August.'
