FERRY users can now share their views on the planned relocation of the Ardrossan-Brodick service to Troon.

CalMac has opened an online public consultation for local stakeholders, businesses and communities to provide feedback on the proposed move, which is scheduled for next summer when MV Glen Sannox is expected to enter service.

The temporary switch will coincide with the introduction of new vessels and infrastructure upgrades at the Ardrossan terminal.

A public consultation event, to discuss the change and the potential timetables which may be in place for around two years, took place in Ardrossan today (Tuesday), with further sessions due to be held in Campbeltown tomorrow (August 24) and in Brodick on Thursday (August 25).

For those who can't attend the events, the survey can be completed online here.

A CalMac spokesperson said: "The information displayed at the consultations can be accessed via the link; this will include access to the survey that will ensure CalMac, and Transport Scotland capture your views on the proposed temporary timetables.

"The survey will be open online on August 23 and will close on September 23.

"CalMac will use feedback to further develop service continuity plans and details for future drop-in sessions will be advertised locally in advance."
