Not ferry good

There are three negative aspects to having a holiday on the West coast of Scotland. The first is the weather - we can't do much about that, and last week it was only bad for one day. The second is the midges - and with the advent of midgeater machines, we can reduce the midge population in localised areas, so this is getting better. The third is the ferries - they are just horrible. I would rather spend time in purgatory than in the 'lounge' of a CalMac ferry! How is it that a ferry can journey across some of the cleanest water in the UK, through the cleanest air in the UK and still have the most foul, non-fresh air in its passenger lounges? Even on the calmest days I feel ill in the passenger lounge of a CalMac ferry.
