Has your business been impacted by recent ferry disruption?

Together with the Community Councils of Mull and Iona, Mull & Iona Community Trust, North West Mull Community Woodland and South West Mull and Iona Development, we are opening a survey to measure the economic impact of recent ferry disruption.

We have heard about delivery delays and building project disruption; cancelled accommodation bookings; lower footfall as result of fewer day trippers; boat trips running with very few passengers; island exports missing deliveries; coach tours denied carriage and tourists uncertain if they can get to the island. The impact has been so significant that many have suggested that financial support will be needed.

We are inviting businesses from Mull and Iona as well as those who do business here, to complete this survey so that the scale of the economic impact can be measured.

The survey will close at midnight on Friday 2nd June. If you do business on Mull and Iona, please take a few minutes to complete it.

  1. (1) A look at MV ARROW using https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/shipid:200090/zoom:10 hints that it might be available for northern parts. Currently at Douglas, Isle of Man at 0928 hrs on 5th June 2023. {2} A survey of Visitor Impact mght show another texture to reinforce the Business Impact.

  2. Listened to Jeremy Vine’s bit on the ferries, was slightly disappointed it seemed a bit soft compared to some of his favourite subjects. Coming maybe a month or two after the worst of it probably took some of the real emotion of how everybody really felt. Joe, I was pleased you got on air, the cmal and snp teams will take note you can reach Ă  bit further than they expect.
