On Saturday (7th September) MV Lord of the Isles was anchored in Loch Boisdale after her propeller was disabled by a tyre.
A CalMac spokesperson explained: “She had been delayed in Lochboisdale due to weather but shortly after leaving at 3.25pm the port propeller was fouled with a tyre.”
He continued: “She could not return to port on one engine due to the weather so anchored in Loch Boisdale while she waited for divers to clear the obstruction. This was eventually done and she sailed to Oban at 6.35pm. “Passengers were kept fully informed throughout and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
