Following an assessment of ferry provision on the Ullapool – Stornoway route, Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), along with colleagues from CalMac Ferries and Scottish Government, will be holding an event on 20th April at 6.30pm, for local residents to hear more about potential future options for the Ullapool – Stornoway ferry service.
The public meeting will take place at the Terminal Building in Ullapool. Representatives from CMAL, the Scottish Government’s Ferries Division and CalMac will be holding the meeting with co-operation of the Ullapool Harbour Trust.
At the meeting, the team will present the findings and options presented in the recent STAG appraisal of the ferry route, subsequent detailed technical and funding analysis and will answer any questions that residents may have.
Guy Platten, Chief Executive of CMAL commented: “Team members will be on hand to provide information and update residents on potential changes to the ferry provision on this route.
“The Ullapool – Stornoway route is a vital service for the west coast of Scotland and we hope that residents will take this opportunity to hear about the options to improve and invest, as well as provide us with feedback and suggestions.”
