“Scotland’s ferries are in urgent need of a new long-term strategy despite public spending more than doubling since 2007/08,” is the conclusion of a report from Scotland’s spending watchdog Audit Scotland.

The report thinks that, “Transport Scotland does not know the full extent of future spending requirements on ferry services and assets, and it will find it difficult to provide these services within its allocated budget.”
