The day we paid back the one million pounds.

The day dawned as it did two years ago, wet and windy, the first thought of the day is “Will the guests be able to make it across on the ferry?” It is not every one that can take the rough seas that can blow up, especially with the forecasted force 6 or 7 S.E. Not to worry all went well, as usual the crew on the Cal-Mac ferry Loch Ranza pulled out all the stops to make sure all whom intending crossing over to Gigha made it. The traffic really started on Sunday with the arrival of B.B.C. Radio Scotland and B.B.C. television vans.

Back to the big day, at times it seemed as if the world and his mother were on Gigha, could we take all this attention? Of course we could, this was the day we had all been working for. And the ferry ploughed back and forth all day from Tayinloan to Gigha, carrying not only all the many vehicles that had to cross over but the foot passengers as well.

To make sure at the end of the day all that were not staying for the evening festivities left the Island on time, the ferry made a extra run, well done Cal-Mac.
