Getting There

Calmac FerryThe most commonly used route to Mull is via the ferry from Oban to Craignure, near the eastern end of the Sound of Mull. There are, however, two less well known alternatives. One links Tobermory on Mull with Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. A more practical option is the 15 minute crossing between Fishnish on Mull and Lochaline at the southern end of Morvern. For current timetable and fare information, and for bookings, visit CalMac's website. Coupled with the short and relatively cheap ferry crossing from Lochaline to Fishnish and the short ferry crossing at Corran, these roads put Mull only about 40 miles away from Fort William. This makes a day trip between the two a realistic proposition.

There are regular rail and coach connections to Glasgow from Oban, with the journey time for either being around three hours. Both the trains and buses are timed to connect with ferry crossings from Craignure.

A normal car journey from Glasgow is an easy 2 hours through some very pretty countryside. The ‘normal’ route as advised by most Sat. Navs. will take you along the side of Loch Lomond and up through Crianlarich. A marginally longer but much more scenic route is via Arrochar. This will take you past Loch Long, up over the ‘Rest and be Thankful’ along the side of Loch Fyne to Inverary, and then finally round the tip of Loch Awe before bringing you into Oban.
