Wemyss Bay - Rothesay
Both ABC lifts in Rothesay are out of order due to essential maintenance, a minibus is on site to take passengers with reduced mobility on board. Passengers are requested to make themselves known to Calmac Staff 20 minutes prior to departure.
Rothesay Quay Improvements
Customers are advised that due to a delay in the commencement of improvement works at Rothesay harbour, a normal timetable will operate until further notice. Dates for the implementation of an amended timetable will be communicated as soon as possible, pending further updates from Argyll & Bute Council.
Restrictions to Gourock linkspan
We have been advised by the owners of Gourock Port, Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL), that a weight restriction is being put on the linkspan at Gourock with immediate effect.
Given Gourock is the alternative mainland port for both Rothesay and Arran this may will have implications for the type of commercial traffic we are able to carry during periods of disruption.
CalMac will therefore be restricting the shipping of vehicles to cars and light goods vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes. In the event of a diversion the onus will be on the driver to prove the vehicles weight by producing a V5 document or showing the weight plate on the vehicle. We will try and give hauliers as much warning as possible if a diversion is likely to allow you to make alternative arrangements.
CMAL have not given any indication how long this restriction will be in place for, but we will keep you fully informed as we get further information from them.
