CMAL is leading plans to upgrade infrastructure at Kennacraig, Port Askaig and Colonsay ferry terminals for the arrival of new ferries, MV Isle of Islay and MV Loch Indaal. CMAL is hosting a series of events to update communities on the progress of these vessels and the planned construction works:

Date Event Venue Event Time Event Notes
Wednesday 10/01/2024 Islay Gaelic Centre/Ionad Chaluim Chille Ìle 16:00–19:00 This event will be an in-person drop-in session
Thursday 11/01/2024 Jura Village Hall 14:00–17:00 This event will be an in-person drop-in session

Engineers from CMAL’s project team will be in attendance, alongside representatives from CalMac, Transport Scotland and Argyll & Bute Council, to share details of the proposed construction plans for the ferry terminals. They will also discuss timescales and any potential changes to services.

Everyone with an interest is encouraged to drop-in at a time and location convenient to them.

For those unable to attend in person, materials presented at the events will subsequently be made available on this webpage.

A further meeting will be held in Colonsay in late February—details to be confirmed in due course.
