LOCH DUNVEGAN

With one exception, the Rathlin ferry CANNA, all ferries operated by Caledonian MacBrayne normally spend Christmas Day tied up. This view shows the Kyles of Bute ferry LOCH DUNVEGAN alongside the pier at Colintraive, having some rare time off in daylight. Previous vessels on the crossing had lain overnight at a mooring buoy a little to the northwest of the ferry slipway, but with her greater bulk, it was considered necessary to build a new structure to give LOCH DUNVEGAN a safe overnight berth before she took over the Colintraive-Rhubodach service in 1999.
