CALMAC has released the first phase of its summer timetables for routes in Inverclyde.

The ferry operator’s new sailing times will begin on March 29 and will be in place until May 31.

Timetables for the period from June 1 to September 30 are still being finalised and will be published ‘as soon as possible’.

CalMac advises customers to pre-purchase their tickets, even if travelling as a foot passenger.

Tickets booked on the Gourock-Dunoon, Gourock-Kilcreggan and Wemyss Bay-Rothesay routes will be valid for the season in which they have been purchased, rather than for a specific sailing.
