The Kyles of Bute car ferry LOCH DUNVEGAN was seen on Sunday afternoon as she made her way to the James Watt Dock in Greenock, where she will be drydocked for her annual survey along with another Bute ferry, the larger BUTE. Unlike smaller 'loch' class ferries, LOCH DUNVEGAN is fitted with a different design of folding ramp, shown here in its raised position. For normal operation on the five-minute crossing between Colintraive and rhubodach, she sails with the ramps extended.
