Cal Mac Summer timetable 2023 opens 31 January

Good Afternoon,

CalMac has today announced that bookings for Summer 2023 (31 March – 15 October) will open on Friday 20 January. 

All routes can be viewed on our website from Thursday 19 January and will be available to book on Friday 20 January, with the exception of: 

·         Mallaig-Small Isles 

·         Mallaig-Armadale 

·         Mallaig-Lochboisdale 

These routes require additional time due to the number of tidal amendments required and the complexity of operating three services from one berth in Mallaig. Due to this, sailings in and out of Mallaig will open for bookings by Tuesday 31 January. 

Online bookings will open at 7am on Friday 20 January, with telephone reservations available from 9am. A queueing system will be in operation on our website to manage the quality of the customer experience when booking online. 

We’re working to finalise timetables for the last week of the Summer Timetable (the period between 16 and 22 October inclusive) as we work to finalise vessel deployment during the start of the annual overhaul period. 

The fares freeze will apply for the whole of the Summer Timetable, up to and including Sunday 22 October. 

For more information, please see our website here  

Kind regards,

Don McKillop
