Mull ferry options: getting to the Isle of Mull

Mull Ferry

The main Mull Ferry is operated by Caledonian MacBrayne, from Oban. The cost of crossing the sea to Mull has become much cheaper since last autumn with the introduction of RET fares.There are three possible crossings to the island and to Traigh Mhor holiday cottage, Mull Ferry options are:

1. Oban-Craignure – approximately 45 minutes

2. Lochaline-Fishnish – crossing takes 15 minutes and is a cheaper option, however, it is a longer drive to Lochaline, and to the cottage when you arrive on Mull at Fishnish. You may also need to take the Corran ferry from Fort William to reach Lochaline.

3. Kilchoan-Tobermory – the best ferry crossing if you are coming from the north. Autumn and winter visitors to Mull will be the first to take advantage of new low cost RET fares, introduced last autumn.

Mull ferry Bookings

Whatever time of year you’re visiting Mull, we’d advise booking the ferry both ways – in good time. Some sailings do fill up fast. The Kilchoan-Tobermory ferry and Lochaline-Fishnish ferry (both run by CalMac) are not bookable and are first come-first aboard.
