CalMac castoff?

CalMac's JUNO has been lying at Rosneath since she was withdrawn from the Wemyss Bay-Rothesay service last April, her place in the active Clyde fleet having effectively been taken by the new Polish-built ferry ARGYLE. What the future holds for the 1974 veteran remains to be seen. Also lying at Rosneath is the former Sound of Barra ferry LOCH BHRUSDA, which was relegated to spare vessel status when LOCH ALAINN took over that service in the summer. However, LOCH BHRUSDA remains an active member of the fleet, having already seen service on the Largs-Cumbrae Slip service twice during the past few months.
