Are there restrictions on ferry travel at present?
Scotland has now moved beyond Level 0 of Scottish Government coronavirus protection levels. There are currently no travel restrictions in place.
There are important safety mitigations in place. We have set these out below - they include the wearing of face coverings, which are mandatory on public transport - unless exempt.
1. Don't travel if you feel unwell or self isolating
2. Plan ahead and be prepared
3. Wear a face covering unless exempt
4. Wash hands regularly
5. Pay using contactless methods
6. Follow guidance and listen to staff
We appreciate your support in following these - they will help everyone exercise care and caution, while we work together to keep our crews, our customers and the islands we serve safe.
A voluntary, Scottish Government scheme inviting all passengers to self-test for Covid-19 three days before travel to a Scottish island and on the day of travel is also in place. It's designed to reduce the risk of spread to island communities. Details are available from gov.scot - including information on how to order free test kits.
If you are travelling with us, it's important that you prepare and plan ahead. Our passenger capacity has increased - however, demand remains high and there are reservations already in our system, so we encourage our customers to book ahead, wherever possible.
