    Calmac Ships in the 1970s – the Clyde and West Coast

    £14.99
    David Christie has been a fan of Caledonian MacBrayne’s characterful ferries since he was a child, and in this nostalgic book, he takes us back to the 1970s by sharing his own photos taken on family holidays and days out in Scotland.

    ISBN 9781398100640

     

    In 1973 David Christie moved house from Essex to Scotland, but it wasn't till 1974 that he discovered the joys of sailing on Calmac's ships. An initial sail on King George V at Oban in her last season was a great introduction but mostly, over the next three years, I focussed on Queen Mary on the Clyde, now safely back in Glasgow at the Science Centre. Most of the Clyde piers are covered, with emphasis on Rothesay. Ferries also feature with old and new on the Rothesay and Dunoon runs and the smaller boats at Largs. The west coast features with Oban as the main terminal, then Mallaig, before a session on the pre-bridge Skye ferries. A single visit to Ullapool finishes this journey back to the seventies.
