Drydocked at Garvel in May last year, the Northern Lighthouse Board's tender PHAROS is back at the yard, where she is currently receiving some attention. In the drydock beyond is CalMac's HEBRIDES, which is presently sharing the dock with LOCH PORTAIN. Both vessels are receiving their annual surveys, and were due to take up their summer timetables on Friday 27 March, although this may now be delayed a little. PHAROS arrived at Garvel on Sunday 15, taking her place in the James Watt Dock following the drydocking of the two ferries.
