The road equivalent tariff (RET) has now become a permanent feature on Western Isles, Coll and Tiree services, following a pilot scheme. The scheme has brought affordable travel for vitors and residents alike. It has also been given the go-ahead for the Sounds of Barra and Harris routes. The scheme has made a huge difference to the Western Isles along with the Sunday Ferries. All that is required now is some good weather!
