Calmac issued the following media statement today due to the continuing bad spell of weather. "With continuing adverse weather conditions affecting Scotland's west coast, Caledonian MacBrayne is advising passengers to check ahead on the company's website, social media feeds or app for any disruptions across the network.
Storm Desmond has been well forecast," said CalMac's Operations Director Drew Collier. "As with any adverse weather, we would ask passengers to consider whether their journey is absolutely necessary and to regularly check for route disruptions across the network. Our website www.calmac.co.uk, Twitter and app all provide continuously updated travel information - our customer services team does a great job of keeping these channels absolutely current and they all provide the best and latest details of our operations. We are committed to working as hard as possible to deliver optimal service cover, but with such adverse conditions predicted, some disruption is likely."
