CalMac issues Easter travel advice
Ferry operator CalMac has issued a reminder that only essential travel will be allowed over the Easter weekend.
'With the weather forecast favourable some people may be tempted to take a trip out, but we have to stress to them in the strongest terms not to, they will not be allowed to travel. Government advice is only to go outside for food, health reasons or work, but only if you cannot work from home,' said CalMac's Director of Operations, Robert Morrison.
'Only essential travellers are currently being allowed to board which includes food and medical supplies, utilities workers, transport and the emergency services.'
CalMac is currently working to an emergency lifeline timetable that has seen overall traffic drop by more the 95%.
