CalMac's 1978-built SATURN was back up-Firth this evening, following a breakdown earlier today of the Rothesay ferry BUTE. As both BUTE and ARGYLE are lying at Rothesay tonight, and in view of the weather conditions, it was decided to berth SATURN at Wemyss Bay when she arrived there tonight after completing her day's duties as the secondary Arran ferry. SATURN will take over BUTE's sailing on Thursday morning, remaining on the Upper Firth until BUTE returns to service.
