New pontoons at Lochmaddy
New pontoons at Lochmaddy
These fine new pontoons were installed in 2016 but unfortunately were almost immediately damaged when the CalMac ferry MV Hebrides had an 'incident'. The CalMac statement said: "A technical failure led to the vessel being unable to reduce speed sufficiently for the routine docking procedures and she struck both pontoons in Lochmaddy harbour and the seabed." It was fortunate that with around 80 passengers and crew aboard, and with no boats on the pontoons, no one was injured.
