Cumbrae Ferries

The annual Country and Western Music Festival is being held at Millport on the island of Cumbrae this weekend, resulting in additional traffic for CalMac's Largs-based ferry fleet. This year the new LOCH SHIRA has had LOCH BHRUSDA as her assistant, as the usual second ferry at Largs, LOCH RIDDON, has spent the past week serving in the Western Isles. She has been on the short crossing between Fionnphort on Mull, and Iona, while the regular ferry there, LOCH BUIE, has been at Corpach for some repair work to her ramps. In this view, LOCH BHRUSDA is arriving at Largs as her larger compatriot picks up another load at Cumbrae Slip.
