The Isle of Mull is
a little far-flung and may lie slightly off the beaten track, but
it is surprisingly easy to get to. Whatever mode of
transport you choose, your journey to the Inner Hebridean island
of Mull promises to be a stunning experience.
How to access the Isle of Mull
From Glasgow, take the M8
and follow the signs for Crianlarich and the A82. At Tyndrum,
home of the famous Green Welly Stop, turn onto the A85, which
terminates in Oban. The directions to the ferry terminal are
well signposted on arriving in Oban. Once on Mull, it is 21 miles
North from Craignure to Tobermory.
Caledonian MacBrayne operate three ferry routes to Mull: Oban to
Craignure, Lochaline to Fishnish and Kilchoan on the
Ardnamurchan Peninsula to Tobermory. The most popular crossing,
travelling from the South, is the 45 minute ferry ride from Oban
to Craignure. This must be booked in advance if bringing your
car to the island. If travelling from Fort William or
Inverness, the Lochaline to Fishnish route is the more convenient
and only takes 15 minutes. For timetables and prices, please
for the Caledonian MacBrayne website.
Trains operate regularly to Oban from Glasgow Queen Street
