In 1969 Arran finished service on the Dunoon service today and repaired to Greenock's East India Graving Dock for an a £40,000 refit, under Lamont's. The tearoom was converted to a full-blown cafeteria/restaurant and for the first time acquired a proper galley with full cooking facilities. The observation lounge was refurbished too; 128 new seats were refurbished for passengers, though its area was reduced in size as additional cabins had to be provided for an enlarged Class V certificate crew. This was to prepare her for new service on the Islay station.
