Welcome to Ships of CalMac!
I suppose as the Site Editor I should explain a bit
about myself and Ships of CalMac… a site produced jointly between myself and the SoC
I am 26 years old and live in a Northumbrian village
just over the boarder from Scotland (what you're not Scottish?! I here you
cry!). My holidays, spare time and occasionally even time at work seem to consist of CalMac.
For over 20 years I've been migrating to Scotland for annual
holidays or with work and despite its reputation for bad whether at the
times i tend to go - enjoy every moment of
I mainly set up this website to gather information
about the vessels so that the information was here all in one place. As you
may have gathered, things have seemed too of spiralled since then! With my
‘Crew’ working along side me, we aim to keep Ships of CalMac as an ongoing
project, to collect information not only on the vessels that ply the Western
Isles, but the way of life they bring with them so that in this ever
changing world, a piece of history is not forgotten…
I receive loads of emails weekly from people and
contacts updating me with news, past crew members, stories, pictures and
more. Through this site I have met and made friends with people through out
the world who are connected with CalMac, something I didn’t think possible
standing on a small ferry mid Sound years ago when i came up with the idea…
My other interests include water sports, Scuba Diving
(which I aim to get finished soon!) and Skiing. However with work
commitments any time spent near or on water seems to be on a CalMac ferry!
I am currently driving for a Bus Company in
Northumberland but I'm never too far from the sea…
