Quotes

It said: "Are you not ashamed of the deficiency of numbers in your Island battalion? Will you not be ashamed when the trouble is over to meet those who have so willingly given their services to protect you and yours? Your services are urgently required."
CalMac managing director Martin Dorchester said: "The two companies selected to work with us have unrivalled experience in this field providing between them similar services for a host of rail and ferry operators both in the UK and overseas, and we are sure all of our customers will find the new systems easy to use and greatly enhance their experience of travelling with us."
"We will have the counting fireworks again, which have increasing numbers of bangs that the crowd can count along with. It was always a popular part of the display and we brought it back last year."
Red Funnel chief executive Kevin George said: "We are delighted so many visitors have engaged with this year’s awards. It is a great way for Red Funnel and the industry to gauge what visitors have enjoyed most about their time on the Island."
