CalMac secures £900m contract for Clyde and Hebridean ferries
Caledonian MacBrayne has won an eight-year-contract to operate the Clyde and Hebridean ferry services.
The state-owned firm saw off competition from private sector rival Serco Caledonian Ferries Ltd who had also been bidding for the £900m contract.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the ferry company was "woven into the fabric of the communities they serve".
