As one who regrettably is not a regular passenger on Calmac Ferries, this is a brilliant start to a holiday on Arran. After a long and tiring 300 mile drive, to arrive at the Ardrossan Calmac Terminal and see your ferry arriving is magic. In...More

This ferry sailed right on time, loading and unloading was very quick. It was a pleasure and the crew couldn't have been nicer.

We were actually on the Isle of Arran boat but the review is the same. Best way to have freshly cooked fish and chips whilst sailing. Lovely evening and lovely views, after a busy day on Arran.

Everyone so friendly, my husband had to go and speak to the lady on the information desk about another trip we are taking later in in the year, problem solved with no problem.
