Sailing Update

Today  Sailings as normal - The relief ferry Dun Anegus will continue in operation until Thursday 24 September as the parts for the oil pump need to be sourced abroad. There was to be some planned maintenance before the winter which would necessitate the relief ferry coming into service and it has been decided to do this in the early days of next week so that there will be no need to bring the Dun Aengus into service a second time.
