Getting to Iona from Mull

Iona Ferry crossing from Mull

The Iona ferry is run by Caledonian MacBrayne and departs from the village of Fionnphort, in the south-western corner of Mull.

The 10-minute ferry ride is for pedestrian visitors only, as just residents’ cars are allowed on Iona. However, you can bring bicycles – a great way of exploring the island.

The Iona ferry runs to summer and winter timetables every day of the week – but can be disrupted by bad weather at almost any time of year. Note that there is no service on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.

The Iona ferry is extremely busy in the summer months, with many tourist coaches descending on the Fionnphort pier.

There is good car parking in the village, an excellent village shop and also a small cafe close to the ferry jetty.
