During the first part of each winter, CalMac's ferry CLANSMAN maintains the services from Oban to Coll, Tiree, Barra and South Uist, much as she does during the summer. After New Year, however, she commences a period of relief duty as other ships in the fleet are given their annual refits. CLANSMAN is pictured at Oban shortly before commencing a voyage round to the Clyde which, for the first time in many years, actually carried a number of passengers as she headed for Ardrossan, a passage that took her around nine hours. On the Clyde, she will be used on the Arran service for about three weeks while CALEDONIAN ISLES, the regular ship, is drydocked at Greenock.
