With LOCH DUNVEGAN now back in service between Colintraive and Rhubodach, the smaller LOCH ALAINN left the Kyles of Bute today and headed for Largs, where she is to spend some time on the Cumbrae Slip service. She is seen this afternoon passing Ardmaleish Boatyard on Bute, where the CalMac ferry LOCH BUIE, normally employed on the Fionnphort-Iona crossing, is having her annual overhaul in the shed. The smaller blue-hulled vessel is MISNEACH, a little bow-loading ferry formerly employed on the west coast of Ireland, and which was recently up for sale here on the Clyde.
