CalMac Pier Phones
Another backward step?
Several years ago Calmac installed phones that work using the internet, IP phones. These have proven to be most unreliable and irritating in diverting you to places other than Coll's port office when you phone 230347.
Many have been using an old direct line to contact the pier - 01879 230541 but, sadly, this (very reliable) line has now been disconnected. Please revert to using 01879 230347 (select Option 2) and then hope you get through to Coll.
