This service is summer only. In the winter, Arran is accessed instead by the Portavadie Ferry service, which was initiated in 2003, or the year-round Brodick Ferry from Ardrossan on the Ayrshire coast.
The ferry service from Claonaig provides a regular link from Arran to Kintyre during the summer months. It is predominantly a tourist service, allowing holidaymakers to cross from Ayrshire to Kintyre via Arran, with the option of then continuing to Islay and the rest of the Hebridies on an Island Hopping Holiday.
The crossing takes approximately half an hour and there are up to 9 crossings each way each day from Monday to Sunday. The Claonaig ferry terminal lies on the B8001, while Lochranza is now at the end of the A841 which used to form a complete circuit of Arran.
