Still lying at Garvel today, LOCH TARBERT was introduced into the CalMac fleet in 1992 on the Lochranza-Claonaig service, where she has remained every summer to date. Her wintertime employment has varied, however, and she now spends time in the Western Isles as well as on the Clyde. Built at the small Fife shipyard of James N Miller at St Monans, she was a development of the original 'Loch' class ferries, but with an increased vehicle capacity - she can carry up to 17 cars.
