'Isle of Arran' - Winter Maintenance

The Calmac ferry 'Isle of Arran' entered the Garvel Dry Dock this afternoon to undertake her annual maintenance.

She is the first of the fleet to come in for her winter service.

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and fairly warm too.

All went smoothly and to plan.
