I am trying to trace where the Calmac ferry MV Bute, went after being disposed of by the company in 1979. There isn't any info on their website. Does anybody have info or perhaps an up to date photo?

Also does anybody have info on the DALHANNA, I am trying to put together information for a friend who sailed on these ships.

Hello Banni:
Try the Clydesite website for a picture and information on the 'Dalhanna':

Hi Banni,

MV Bute was sold to the Greek Company of PHETOURIS in 1980, however she only lasted with them until 1985 when she was scrapped.

The same Company also bought her sister Cowal in 1979, howver she only lasted until 1984 before being scrapped.

Picture and info at http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/tramways/ClydeCarFerries.htm

Kind regards,

Chris Allman.
