West coast ferry operator CalMac is to further extend its essential travel only timetable until at least 30 June.
No future bookings will be taken until after this date as the company continues to work with the Scottish Government and Transport Scotland to implement future travel and transport guidelines.
"‘We will continue to take our lead from the Scottish Government and Transport Scotland, while working closely with the communities we serve. When we agree the next phase of our timetable, it will still look very different to our service during normal times, and will remain focused on the priority lifeline services and the changing needs and welfare of island communities,’ said CalMac’s Managing Director, Robbie Drummond.
Current official advice remains to stay at home as much as possible, stay local and only travel if your journey is essential.
In line with Scottish Government guidelines, travel to islands continues to be for essential reasons only. The islands are not yet open for recreational purposes and should also not be used by anyone travelling for recreation, including to second homes.
‘Where your journey is essential, please follow the updated advice on how to travel safely,' added Robbie. That advice can be found here: https://www.calmac.co.uk/covid19/faqs/what-can-you-do
