ISLE of Bute ferry passengers had an unexpected diversion to Gourock today Thursday (April 7) after contractors left equipment at the Wemyss Bay terminal preventing cars alighting.

A CalMac spokesman told the Standard: “The first two sailings were diverted to Gourock as the linkspan was prevented from going down due to equipment left from the night before.

“Passengers were able to get off at Wemyss Bay, but cars had to be taken to Gourock.”

The route is now back to normal operation.
