Additional Sailings and Service Changes

Lochaline Slipway Closure - Monday 21st October until Sunday 1st December

CMAL will be undertaking work at Lochaline slipway which will result in a foot passenger ONLY service operating from the Wood Pier in Lochaline to Fishnish from 21st October - 1st December 2019. The service will operate between the Lochaline Wood Pier and Fishnish slipway. For the duration of the project, Shiel Buses will extend their route from the existing slipway to the temporary embarkation point.

All vehicle traffic to the island will be diverted via Oban/Craignure and Kilchoan/Tobermory while the work takes place.

The upgrade work includes the removal of the old structure and the construction of a new one, as well as improving the overnight ferry berth at the terminal. Extra marshalling space will be created to improve traffic flow through the port area and the project will also see the existing slipway widened and lengthened, and the berth area deepened.

To help ease the extra burden for local businesses during this period of disruption, commercial vehicles will be charged at the cheaper Lochaline/Fishnish rate for the longer crossing from Oban to Craignure. Additional support from MV Loch Bhrusda, MV Clansman and MV Lord of the Isles will be available to assist in the transport of Dangerous Goods from Oban to the island while the slipway is closed.

For customers travelling with reduced mobility, please be advised that customers will be required to embark/disembark via a gangway, and that there is no lift facility from the car deck to the passenger deck.
