Clydelink have announced details of replacement coaches which will will run because of problems with the Kilcreggan to Gourock ferry tomorrow, Tuesday May 1.

Mr Aikman said: “The matter of creels layed in the path of the Gourock to Kilcreggan ferry service has been raised with the Statutory Harbour Authority. It is anticipated that the Statutory Harbour Authority will (in conjunction with Clydelink) seek to remove any obstruction placed in close proximity to the operational route through the appropriate means.”
He added that the coaches would stop off en route if a specific request was made to the driver, and time permitted.
