It's great that Cal Mac is still in Public ownership, Europe attempted to issue a directive that the Public Company should be put out to tender, thankfully, no-one seemed interested. 3 cheers!!!!

Peter - Where is this place Broddick on Arran? I know there's a Brodick, but didn't realise Broddick existed. Is it on top of Goatfell?

The Scottish Executive in their wisdom has decided to put the Gourock-Dunoon Calmac service out to tender and the winner of this contract won't know until July 2011 , in the meantime MV Saturn marches on to cover this route until then. Being a Calmac fan , I really hope they keep it.
