Oban to Craignure

Oban is the principal ferry port for Mull and (indirectly) Iona

Ferries run seven days a week, Summer and Winter, except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

In summer there are generally six sailings each way every day. As a guide, ferries leave Oban on the EVEN hour, and Craignure on the ODD hour from 08:00 to 19:00, but there are variations; morning ferries are up to 15 minutes earlier than the above would indicate, and the first ferry on Monday departs at 07:00.

In winter the sailings vary according to the day of the week. For Winter 2014-15 additional sailings have been introduced on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
