Lawyers at Dundas & Wilson have advised the Scottish Government on a contract to secure lifeline ferry and harbour services in the Clyde and Hebrides.

CalMac Ferries will provide these services for the next six years under the new contract, which is worth 43m over the next 12 months.

This is the second major ferry project completed by D&W for the Scottish Government, the first being the six-year contract awarded last summer to Northlink Ferry Services for the services to the Northern Isles.

D&W was able to combine its public sector project experience with a depth of expertise in the shipping and harbour operations sectors.

Teddy Davidson, who led the D&W team advising on the deal, said: "The Clyde and Hebrides ferry services are a vital link to the mainland for the island communities they serve, so we're very pleased to have been able to apply a wide range of skills to secure this important part of Scotland's transport infrastructure."
