With gusts of 62mph forecast for Tuesday the 8th of March, Tuesday’s ferry is on an alert of delay or cancellation at shortnotice. The expectation is that anytime soon it will be cancelled. After three glorious calm, sunny days, today Monday 7th of March was a bit of a shock to the system.
There was still a hint of brightness, but the southerly wind was bitterly cold, especially down by the pier. With winds gusting at 37mph Monday’s crossing from Oban and Coll arrived in Gott Bay. For the MV Lord of the Isles she put up a good bow wave entering and leaving the bay.
The Lord of Isles can rock and roll quite a bit when alongside the pier. Today there was very little movement and thankfully not a hint of a rope snapping. Nevertheless it could not have been pleasant handling the ropes, especially on the roundhead. Below is a photo record from the pier.
