Calmac ferry at Corran near Fort William

On the 19th September 2002 Caledonian Macbrayne car ferry docking at Corran just south of Fort William. The name appears to be Loch Fyne although I am sure that name appears on another Calmac ferry!!
She plies her trade crossing the short distance between Corran and Ardgour across Loch Linnhe which is a sea loch.

I work aboard something similar in Canada. eg double-ended, carrying our ramps, on a salt-water river.
How many cars does she carry - in 2 or 3 lanes? How long the crossing and how frequently, weather conditions encountered? Year-round?

It has 3 lanes and does the 15 minute crossing from Fisnish on the Isle of Mull to Lochallain on the mainland. It carrys around 36 cars and the service is year round

The picture is actually of the Loch Fyne, which sails from Lochaline (mainland) to Fishnish (Isle of Mull) and is completely separate - by about 30 miles(!) - the ferry at Corran. That service isn't even run by CalMac, instead being run by the Highland Council. The ferry they use is called 'Corran'
