Lord of the Isles

Caledonian Macbrayne's Lord of the Isles "makes smoke" at No.2 berth 22 October 2009. After a delayed arrival from Colinsay due to an unexpected full vehicular load (only one van could not be accommodated, a feat of management by deck staff!) requiring ballast adjustments, LOTI had to skip to avoid delaying the arrival of Isle of Mull!
