We are readying ourselves for the coming season and the boat is undergoing some extensive refurbishment courtesy of Q Banting, skipper/engineer who is hard at it in Kishorn as we speak. The distinctive turntable has been removed for the first time in the vessel's history and was in remarkably good condition. It has been sandblasted and repainted and looks splendid!Our intended start date for service is 10th April - which may be subject to other works in and around the Glenelg slipway. I shall of course, keep you informed closer to the date. Fingers crossed.
Excitingly, Glenachulish will look very different this season with a return to her original livery. A photo opportunity if ever there was one...
Skipper Donovan was named as an ambassador for tourism in Scotland at a recent Visit Scotland event in Inverness hosted by Fergus Ewing and has been contacted by The One Show with a view to an appearance this summer! Keep watching!
We have some interesting events/happenings planned for this season also - details nearer the time.
