Product information

Hoist-loading car ferry that entered service in January 1954 as Arran for the Caledonian Steam Packet between Gourock and Dunoon. In 1970 she switched to the West Loch Tarbert to Islay route. In 1972 she was rebuilt as a roll-on roll-off ferry but was replaced in 1974 and became a relief ship. Sold in 1981 for use as a restaurant at Dublin and some conversion work was carried out but in 1983 the enterprise was abandoned. Sold in 1986 and towed to Salford Quays, Manchester, but with no change of fortune. Broken up in 1993.
