Why do I have to complete passenger registration on certain routes?


For voyages longer than 20 miles out to sea we're required to collect passenger details (name, sex, date of birth). If you're travelling on these routes, we need to record your details in both directions:

  • Ardrossan - Campbeltown

  • Campbeltown - Brodick

  • Coll - Tiree

  • Lochboisdale - Castlebay

  • Lochmaddy - Tarbert

  • Mallaig - Lochboisdale

  • Oban - Castlebay

  • Oban - Coll

  • Oban - Colonsay

  • Oban - Lochboisdale

  • Oban - Tiree

  • Tiree - Castlebay

  • Uig - Lochmaddy

  • Uig - Tarbert

  • Ullapool - Stornoway

If you travel on these routes you must observe the check in times for registration for the particular sailing and be on board the vessel at least 10 minutes prior to sailing time. (See appropriate timetable for information). Each passenger must complete a Passenger Registration card. These cards will then be collected on boarding and, where applicable, the second (landing) part of the card should be retained for collection on disembarking.
