MV Loch Striven

MV Loch Striven

About

The first of four drive-through ferries built in the 80s, the Loch Striven, Loch Sriogheann in Gaelic, sails from Oban to Lismore. She has no funnels, but her wheelhouse is painted like one - look out for it as you board. Launched in 1986, she's run a number of smaller crossings, including Sconser to Raasay, before settling in at Oban.
