MV Isle of Arran

MV Isle of Arran



The MV Isle of Arran, Eilean Arainn in Gaelic, tends to spend her summers sailing from Ardrossan to Arran and Campbeltown. During the winter months she provides much needed support across the network, allowing other ferries time away from their route to complete their annual maintenance periods. Launched in 1984, she served ten years on the route from Ardrossan to Brodick, then a stint to Islay, before taking up her current duties.


Food and Drink - As a result of the latest Scottish Government restrictions from Friday 8 January 2021, the food, drink and retail offer on board our vessels will change. We will be providing a selection of hot snacks, soups and sandwiches as well as hot and cold drinks on a number of our longer routes. Our menu will be more limited than in 'normal' circumstances while we continue to manage the health and safety mitigations in place to help keep our passengers, crew and the islands we serve safe.
