What does essential travel mean?
The First Minister has announced that our ferries should only be used for essential supplies or business by those that live on the islands. We ask that you do not travel on our vessels unless your travel is indeed essential.
Further, on 23 March 2020, the First Minister also announced that people must stay at home except for:
Essential shopping - for food or medicines and only once a day
Medical reasons or for the care of vulnerable people
Travel to and from essential work - all employers should be making provision to work from home.
