After a delivery voyage lasting around seventy two hours, CalMac's newest ferry is seen above making her entrance past Dunolloie Castle and into Oban Bay. FINLAGGAN, built by the Remontowa Shipyard at Gdansk in Poland, left her builders on Thursday. The new £24.5 million vessel was handed over to Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd on Wednesday 11th May and immediately chartered to CalMac Ferries Ltd for use on their Islay service from Kennacraig. After storing at Oban she was expected to undertake berthing trials and enter service after a naming ceremony on 25th May.
