Ferry strike cancels Fad event

This weekend's PAC access event on Loch Fad has been cancelled due to a strike by dock workers. Pier hands are staging a walk-out in a dispute over pay. Operator Caledonian MacBrayne says it will be unable to berth ferries safely.

Events organiser Mark Skinner said: "It's a shame that due to the impending industrial action, this event has had to be cancelled.

"With problems arranging an alternative date, with regards to members getting time off etc, it has been decided to not arrange another weekend and for those that have been booked on for the coming weekend a full refund will be posted out.

"Thanks to Scott Davidson for all the work that he has put in leading up to this event."
