New Ship on the Dock
There's more than a new kid on the block; CalMac has a new ship on the dock. The Kennacraig to Port Issac route between the Mainland to Islay is now served by the £24 million, Polish-built MV Finlaggan. It has a different feel for passengers and many television screens to divert attention from the scenery, but the same hearty food and consistent service. So consider a cruise to Islay by starting with a scrutiny of the CalMac timetables.
