The Buckie registered “Sparkling Star” which has been fishing in the North Minch for the past few years has recently been acquired by Skipper Allan Cameron, Acharachle. We welcome the 18 metre trawler to Mallaig and wish Allan, who will operate through the Mallaig Fishermen’s Co-op and is a member of the Mallaig & North West Fishermen’s Association, all the best with his latest business venture!
CalMac’s winter timetable comes into effect on Monday 23rd October and marks the end of the daily connection between Lochboisdale and Mallaig – a service that has been extremely well used over the past six months or so.
Like last winter the “Lord of The Isles” will operate between Lochboisdale and Mallaig, departing at 7.15am each Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday with arrival at Mallaig at 10.45am. The return leg of the journey will be departing at 14.00hrs (2pm) on Wednesday and Saturday and half an hour earlier (1.30pm) on a Sunday.
Both the Skye Ferry Service and The Small Isles Service remain unchanged from last winter.
