Colintraive Ferries

Although normally employed at Largs during the summer, LOCH RIDDON occasionally is sent to relieve on other nearby routes when one of the other CalMac ferries suffers from technical problems. She is seen here at Colintraive on one such occasion after the regular ferry LOCH DUNVEGAN had a breakdown and was unable to take up service that morning. A little while after this picture was taken, LOCH DUNVEGAN was repaired and managed to resume duty running across the Kyles of Bute to Rhubodach, and so allowing LOCH RIDDON to return to Largs.
