Clyde Marine Services' little passenger ferry KENILWORTH spent a couple of hours alongside the breakwater at Dunoon this afternoon. She is currently being used on a programme of short cruises from Greenock and Helensburgh to Dunoon, Blairmore and Loch Goil. The Argyll Forest Park ferry service, as it is billed, operates until the end of August. Sadly, today's sailing from Dunoon to the mouth of Loch Goil was cancelled due to a lack of support. Since having been replaced on the SPT ferry service from Gourock to Kilcreggan and Helensburgh last year by SEABUS, her owners have extensively refurbished KENILWORTH and she now has an appearance, internally as well as externally, more in keeping with her age. Built in 1936, she still sees occasional use on her former route.
