Plans to scrap Ardnamurchan vehicle ferry service could cripple local economy, say crofters

Crofters in the west of Lochaber are urging the Scottish Government to reconsider a proposal to withdraw the vehicle ferry service between West Ardnamurchan and the Isle of Mull, warning that this proposal could have a crippling effect on economic activity in their area and harm their community’s future wellbeing.

The Government’s ferry review proposes replacing the current vehicle and passenger service between Kilchoan in Ardnamurchan and Tobermory on Mull with a passenger only service. The authors of the Government review believe that the passenger only service “would continue to meet the needs of the local community”, a claim that local crofters argue is nonsense.
