Topic & Speaker:Caledonian MacBrayne by David Cannon, Head of Stakeholder Communications, David MacBrayne Group.

The Caledonian MacBrayne fleet is the largest fleet of car and passenger ferries in the United Kingdom. With 31 units in operation (with another 2 under construction), the company provides lifeline services to 23 islands off the west coast of Scotland, as well as operating routes across the Firth of Clyde. Argyll Ferries also run a regular service between Dunoon and Gourock. David and Ian will tell us about progress in renewing the fleet, how the company is helping sustain the tourist boom which has been brought about by factors including the weak pound and introduction of road equivalent tariffs.

Topic & Speaker:"Transport: the gift to newshounds that keeps on giving" by Dalton Alastair Dalton, transport correspondent of The Scotsman

Alastair Dalton is Scotland's leading transport correspondent, writing for both The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday, reporting news and also reflecting in his regular Inside Transport column on the state of our transport networks. There he recently listed bus, air and car as his least favourite modes, with rail in the middle and his preferred modes for at least local journeys as walking and especially electric bikes. The conflict at local level between cyclists, motorists and pedestrians over allocation of roadspace has attracted his attention, and he has also observed the ability of especially the rail industry to shoot itself in the foot.
