News in brief: Earlier start for bus passengers, Waverley winner

New timetables are being introduced for the Rosneath Peninsula this weekend.

The second bus leaving Coulport on weekday mornings will leave earlier from this Sunday (July 16), departing at 6.50 rather than 7am.

From Helensburgh it will continue to Loch Lomond Shores in Balloch.

The winner of our Waverley competition was Cameron Summers of Kilcreggan, who will be contacted by the paddle steamer preservation society about his prize.

Commiserations to all the unlucky entrants; the answer of course was this this is the 70th anniversary of the Waverley’s maiden voyage.
