There has been a new Ferry Review published by the Scottish Government. The popular petition for the establishment of a Mallaig to Lochboisdale crossing has not been dismissed, but, as yet, there is no plan to implement it. Support will continue to be sought. A report in the West Highland Free Press suggests that Pentland Ferries with its now spare, former CalMac vessel, the MV Claymore, may be interested. Now that the Fort William - Mallaig road has been upgraded, this new ferry route does appeal.
