Getting a Ferry to Mull

During the Covid Pandemic, restrictions on public transport mean that ferry capacity has been reduced, so it can sometimes be hard to get a ferry reservation between Oban and Craignure.

However, there is an alternative.

Taking the Lochaline-Fishnish ferry involves a longer drive, but is a shorter crossing (18 minutes) and there is a 10 rather than 30 minute check-in. You will normally also want to take the Corran Ferry, just south of Fort William. At busy times, it may be that you have to queue and wait for the next crossing, so allow for this in your journey plan. (It's not recommended to turn up for the last crossing of the day with 2 minutes to spare !).

A further alternative route is taking the ferry between Kilchoan and Tobermory. This is a nice route, with the option of visiting the Ardnamurchan peninsula. However if you are coming from (or going to) the south, it is a much longer drive. This route is also "turn up and go".

Please ask us if you have any concerns or questions about travel to Mull.
