I have holiday accommodation booked on the islands; can I travel?


No. CalMac is implementing strict controls set out by the Scottish Government to flatten the curve of Covid-19 spread and protect the NHS. As a result, passengers who intend to holiday on the islands, or those who are unable to produce evidence of island residency or key worker status are not permitted to travel.

The islands are currently closed to those who wish to holiday here. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future, but for now our ferries should only be used for essential supplies and essential travel. We've set out here in our FAQs what constitutes essential travel.
