MV Loch Fyne

About

MV Loch Fyne, Loch F├Čne in Gaelic, sails from Mallaig to Armadale on Skye. MV Loch Fyne oiginally entered service at Kyle of Lochalsh on 12 September 1991 sailing to Kyleakin on Skye, replacing the last of the old ferries, MV Kyleakin. On 16 October 1995, MV Loch Fyne and MV Loch Dunvegan, dressed with flags, gave the last ever car ferry runs across this narrow stretch of water before the Skye Bridge was opened. Loch Fyne was laid up in James Watt Dock at Greenock for two years. She came out of retirement in 1997 when the MV Loch Dunvegan needed emergency repairs and took over the Lochaline to Fishnish route. Since then she has returned to the Mallaig to Armadale route.
