Service status & info


Ardrossan (ARD) - Campbeltown (CAM)

Cancelled for the remainder of today

Service updates

Thursday 29 April to no earlier than Thursday 3 June*

Due to a technical issue elsewhere in the network this service will continue to be cancelled to accommodate essential demand elsewhere until no earlier than Thursday 3 June. (*This date is subject to change and we will continue to keep our customers updated throughout.)

The change to this service is in response to a major failure of the port engine with MV Loch Seaforth operating the Ullapool – Stornoway route. As a result of ongoing repairs to the MV Loch Seaforth, investigations to repair the damage to one of the engine bearings have identified further issues to the engine crankshaft which will require attention before the vessel can return to service.

Specialist engineers have advised that the revised projected date of return of 21 May, has now had to be pushed back to 28 May at the earliest.

As a result, we will then reposition our vessels and normal service will be expected to resume no earlier than Thursday 3 June.

We recognise the cancellation of any service can be very challenging for our customers and the communities we serve and apologise for the disruption this will cause.
