Scillonian Nominated In Travel Awards
They had been shortlisted in the Independent newspaper’s Travel Awards, alongside five other ferry operators.
The paper says the awards are designed to recognise companies that have gone the extra mile to ensure that our journeys are gratifying.
Winners were chosen based on reader votes and consideration by a panel of judges including adventurer Ben Fogle and Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler.
The Scillonian was pipped to the post by Scottish Islands’ operator Caledonian MacBrayne at tonight’s awards ceremony in London.
That was the company which was the focus of a report published by the Council in 2012 comparing the costs of travel in Scilly and the Highlands.
