Ferry passengers can now book sailings for the months ahead following the launch of CalMac’s winter timetable.

Journeys for the period October 19 2020 until March 25 2021 can be booked at

Asked what demand there had been, the company said there had been an increase in bookings compared to the norm.

Robert Morrison, director of operations for CalMac, said: ‘The winter timetable has been released following consultation with Transport Scotland and we look forward to welcoming passengers on board.

‘As Scotland is still in phase three of Covid restrictions, there are slight changes to some sailings and capacity is still less than usual.

‘We are encouraging passengers to plan ahead as much as possible and to wear face coverings when required to do so, unless they are exempt.

‘More information about the measures we are taking to keep staff and passengers safe can be found in our travel guidelines on our website.’
