The MV Isle of Mull is not a good fit for the newly-created port at Uig on Skye, CalMac’s berthing trials have concluded.

Following yesterday’s berthing trials (Thursday, April 18), the ferry operator has introduced a new amended timetable.

After the unsuccessful berthing trials, CalMac said: “Unfortunately, the berthing trial carried out with MV Isle of Mull at Uig has demonstrated that we would not be able to deliver a regular timetabled service to Uig. This is due to the vessel only being able to fit at certain tides.”
