We sometimes make changes to journeys and excursions in response to adverse weather conditions, road repairs, road congestion and other local factors. In these circumstances the driver/company will exercise discretion reasonably having all due consideration to the relevant factors and as a result there may be changes to the planned journey/excursion.

Please note that as Steam Packet sailings will not be confirmed until late October 2020 there is the liklihood that the schedule may change.
