Gourock Linkspan

Gourock linkspan is closed from 19th October until further notice for essential repair and maintenance. During this time if the ferry cannot berth at Wemyss Bay due to adverse weather conditions all traffic will be re-routed through Rhubodach – Colintraive and Hunters Quay – McInroy’s Point (Western Ferries). Vehicle drivers must go to either Wemyss Bay or Rothesay port office to exchange their tickets for a warrant that will allow them to travel on the alternative route at no additional cost. The vouchers are not available anywhere except Wemyss Bay or Rothesay port offices. The tickets can only be exchanged for the warrant on the day of the disruption.
