Troon harbour owner Associated British Ports (ABP) say they have reached an important milestone after getting the town’s ferry terminal up to scratch for the arrival of CalMac ferries.

The works have been completed ahead of the South Ayrshire port welcoming the Arran ferry as it temporarily relocates from Ardrossan harbour — which is set to undergo a multi-million pound transformation.

The works were carried out by George Leslie to support the CalMac services from Ardrossan-Brodick/ Campeltown.

ABP’s Regional Director Andrew Hartson said: “It is great to reach such an important milestone in the project and I am hugely proud of the local ABP team and our civil engineering contractors, George Leslie, who have worked so well together to deliver this on time and within budget.”
