Last Waverley cruise cancelled

The last Waverley cruise of the season up Loch Long to Arrochar from Blairmore has been cancelled due to the bad weather which has delayed her departure from Southampton. As can be seen from the MarineTraffic.com image, her position is currently (16:00hrs) off Torbay, south west England. Her ETA at Glasgow is Sunday 10.00hrs, therefore her final cruise to Tighnabruach on Sunday cannot be confirmed.
