Islay Ferry Service back to Normal

It was a little over a month ago, the 22nd of June to be precise, that Calmac announced the problems with the Clansman Ferry and the subsequent one ferry timetable. This situation lasted more than a month and will finally end this weekend. Today Calmac sent out the following information:

The MV Hebridean Isles will be released from Oban this afternoon, after completion of the Tiree service and will return to our area by early evening. As from tomorrow we will be in a position to operate our normal two vessel timetable with some slight tweaking as we have already committed ourselves to a revised timetable over Saturday and Sunday - which we think is only right that we also honour. Basically we will be operating a few additional sailings over the weekend.

Please find undernoted timetable which will operate on Saturday 31 July and Sunday 1 August:

Saturday 31 July
Depart Kennacraig: 0130 (additional), 0700, 0945, 1300 and 1800
