Caledonian MacBrayne's Rathlin Island ferry, the MV Canna, was built
in 1973. It has a nominal capacity of six cars and 140 passengers, though it seems much
smaller. (When I was on board, most of the passengers were seated on plastic
chairs inside the gunwales, which were occasionally doused by spray during the
45-minute trip from Ballycastle.)
- Tip: Looking for a free souvenir? Pick up a Caledonian MacBrayne
bumper sticker and a "I sailed with Captain CalMac" clothing sticker in the
Ballycastle ticket office.
