CalMac has withdrawn one of its ferries and cancelled a number of journeys after crew members tested positive for Covid-19.
The MV Caledonian has been taken out of action after the positive tests were confirmed on Tuesday.
The vessel has been withdrawn to allow for the crew to be replaced and a deep clean to take place.
Sailings on the MV Arran have also been cancelled for vital repairs after an issue with the vessel’s bow visor seal was discovered.
Several journeys due to take place on Wednesday have been cancelled as a result.
MV Isle of Arran sailings due to depart from Ardrossan on Wednesday at 8.20am, 11.05am, 1.50pm, 4.40pm and 7.20pm and departing Brodick at 7am, 9.45am, 12.30pm, 3.15pm and 6pm have all been cancelled.
And as a result of essential repairs that need to be carried out to MV Isle of Arran’s bow visor seal, sailings which are normally operated by MV Caledonian Isles departing Ardrosson at 7am and 9.45am and departing Brodick at 8.20am and 11.05 am have also been cancelled.
Following repairs MV Isle of Arran intends to operate from Ardrossan at 12.30pm, 3.20pm and 6pm and from Brodick at 1.50pm, 4.40pm and 7.20pm.
However, a review for the 12:30pm departing Ardrossan will be taken at 11am on Wednesday with the operator warning that these sailings remain liable to disruption or cancellation at short notice.
