What do the latest steps to tackle the spread of Covid-19 mean for ferry travel?


Changes to Scotland's Covid-19 protection measures have been announced by the Scottish Government. They include Scottish Government travel restrictions which are now law.

We are working closely with Transport Scotland and we ask that our customers follow the latest nationwide guidelines and the protection measures within the local authority area you may be planning to from/to. These include laws on:

  • the use of public transport in areas within the level 0 - level 4-tiered framework and,

  • travel into and out of local authority areas within the level 0 - level 4-tiered framework.

For more details visit the gov.scot website or use the postcode checker, to find out what restrictions apply in your area. 

If you are sailing with us, please follow the safety measures we have in place to help protect each other and the islands we serve. Please also remember that on public transport, you must by law wear a face covering, unless you are exempt.

If you have an existing booking(s) on any sailing until the 31 January 2021, and no longer wish to travel, you can cancel your reservation and we will waive the £10 refund administration fee. You can begin that process by completing our online refund request form.
