Normally operating during the period of Caledonian MacBrayne's summer timetable between Mallaig and Armadale on the Isle of Skye, the ferry CORUISK spends her wintertime on the Clyde. She arrived back at Gourock yesterday evening, and this morning visited Rothesay for berthing trials at the Bute resort. She is seen in this view returning to Gourock today, while in the background her older fleetmate JUPITER heads for Dunoon. CORUISK was built in 2003 by Appledore Shipbuilders, and is 65.0 metres in length, and is 1,599 gross tons. Her design remains quite unique amongst the British ferry fleet!
