30/08/04 Clansman was diverted on her inward bound crossing from Barra to call at Tiree, in lieu of Lord of the Isles. She also made a call on her outward bound sailing from Oban.

29/08/04 Lord of the Isles suffered a breakdown and is currently lying in Oban. It is expected that Isle of Mull, Clansman or one of the Islay ferries, most likely Isle of Arran will cover the stricken ferry's duties until her return to service.

20/08/04 Clansman did her morning run to Coll and Tiree as usual before taking the Mull roster in the afternoon. Isle of Mull was covering the Barra route for the afternoon. After the Mull duties were done Clansman then performed an extra overnight crossing to Tiree and back for the cattle sales.

11/08/04 The sailing from Ardrossan to Brodick (15:15) was delayed due to the late arrival of the train, which was late because of flooding on the track. The Caledonian Isles left Ardrossan 15 minutes later at 15:30.
 
10/08/04 The 8am ferry from Rothesay this morning was delayed by 25 mins after a lorry on the incoming sailing was unable to manoeuvre off MV Juno's car deck. 8.45am ex Wemyss Bay and 9.30am ex Rothesay were cancelled to allow recovery of the timetable. Normal service resumed with the 10.15am from WB.
