A two-hour evening cruise from Plockton of Loch Carron has been organised to raise funds for Paddle Steamer Waverley’s boiler replacement. The cruise is available to all whether a member of the PSPS or not.
Thanks to the extreme generosity of Calum Mackenzie, owner of Calum’s Seal Trips, 100% of the ticket price will go towards supporting Waverley.
The cruise, on board the 51 foot MV Sula Mhor pictured above, will depart from Plockton at 17:30 on Tuesday 28th May, returning at around 19:30. This is the same evening that Waverley was originally scheduled to arrive at Kyle of Lochalsh. For more information on Waverley’s plight and alternative ways to donate, see here.
The picturesque village of Plockton is 6 miles (10km) from Kyle of Lochalsh, a 15 minute trip by road or rail. A train departs Kyle at 13:46 arriving Plockton 13:59. The return is at 20:18 arriving Kyle 20:31. Note that there is a leisurely ¾ mile (1.2km) stroll downhill from the station to the village which becomes a long uphill trek at the end of the day. A car will provide a shuttle service back to Plockton station following the cruise.

No physical tickets will issued nor are they required. Purchasers names and numbers will checked prior to departure. Once purchased tickets will not be refunded unless the cruise is cancelled.
