-> 2006 -> Islay Ferry Route Tender


Islay Ferry Route Tender

Now this one could be an interesting story to follow. Or turn out to be dead boring and bring little to no change. Either way I know it's a frequently discussed topic in the Ileach: The ferry services to Islay, together with a few other routes, have been put out to tender.

The Scotsman also reports and an interesting discussion is developing in the comments. With the deadline for submissions not until May 2007 I think there will be a lot more discussion over the coming months.

It will be interesting to see if the promised new ferry really materialises (and when) and how this whole process will influence the ferry prices, a quite large chunk of money when taking a car over to Islay. Or taking a car to the mainland for those living on Islay.
