FERRY services from Gourock have been disrupted this afternoon due to high winds.

CalMac sailings to and from Dunoon have been suspended, with a replacement bus service running to Western Ferries.

Services between Gourock and Kilcreggan have also been cancelled for the remainder of today.

A CalMac spokesperson said: “Disrupting a sailing is a decision we do not take lightly because we know it will inconvenience our customers and the communities we serve.

“However, the safety of our customers and crew must come first.

“In this instance, the Master of the vessel has judged it is necessary in response to the assessment of adverse weather conditions.”

The Wemyss Bay-Rothesay route continues to run, but the service is liable to disruption or cancellation at short notice due to the forecast.

Inverclyde is bracing for gusts of up to 53mph overnight, with a Met Office yellow weather warning coming into force at midnight.

The warning will remain in place until 9pm tomorrow.
