#FerryReturns - Scottish ferry operator Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) has confirmed repairs to MV Hebridean Isles have been completed following a collision at Kennacraig, Kintyre last month.

The 494 passenger /68 car/10 lorry capacity ferry had undergone repairs to the bow at the Garvel Dry Dock, Greenock on the Clyde. The ferry since yesterday returned to Kennacraig-Islay service.

Plans to operate Islay running mate, MV Finlaggan overnight to accommodate freight traffic will continue for the rest of the week on a 24 hour service until next Saturday, August 13th.

The return of Hebridean Isles has not required the deployment of MV Isle of Arran as previously reported on Afloat.ie and the vessel remains on her usual route to and from Ardrossan to Arran.
