My Favourites

Your West Coast

Proud to serve for 165 years and counting, to celebrate our historic and ongoing relationship with the west coast of Scotland this beautiful film has been created. The Your West Coast music video features both old and new footage being projected onto iconic locations across the west coast. The sound track to the video was written and performed by traditional Scottish highland music band Skipinnish.

Over 12 nights last summer CalMac went out with projection company Double Take and beamed massive archive images on to around 30 locations up and down the west coast for the project from Islay, Ardnamurchan and Mull to Oban, Cumbrae, Eigg and Skye.

The footage (which includes an incredible array of subjects from entire mountains, ancient castles and a cathedral, to row boats, harbours and a tiny bothy) was then combined with a specially-recorded song by Skipinnish.
