The River Clyde is set to emulate the Maldives with a regular seaplane service. Starting Spring 2007, regular flights will be scheduled to remote West Coast peninsulas and and islands thereby cutting journey times from hours to minutes. For example, the journey from Glasgow to Portree on Skye will take about 45 minutes compared with the normal 6.5 hours by car. Other destinations are expected to include isles of Arran, Bute, Mull, Jura as well as Oban, Crinan, Tighnabruaich and Campbelltown. The service is operated by Loch Lomond Seaplanes.
