To ask the Scottish Government whether either of the two new vessels being procured by Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd would be able to dock at (a) Port Ellen and (b) Port Askaig.


Answered by Derek Mackay (11/09/2015):

The new vessels have not been designed to berth at the current facilities at Port Ellen or Port Askaig.

In his announcement of 15 October 2014, the then Minister for Transport and Veterans, Keith Brown MSP, stated that the new ferries would be designed to provide a fully flexible year-round service for Arran and the Uig Triangle (Uig to Tarbert to Lochmaddy).
