Mull [1] is an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It is in the Argyll and Bute Council Area.

Mull is the fourth largest Scottish island, with an area of 338 square miles and a resident population around 2000. Mull is a popular destination for tourists, and also many people from Central Scotland have holiday homes here.

Get in

Unless you have your own boat or plane, the only way in is on one of the Calmac ferries:

By Ferry

Calmac [2] run 3 ferries connecting Mull with the mainland, and one to Iona.

  • Oban to Craignure (daily 5-8 times per day, takes 45 minutes). Probably the most convenient for those without a car, as Oban has good bus and rail links.
  • Lochaline to Fishnish Sometimes hourly, taking 15 minutes.
  • Kilchoan on Ardnamurchan to Tobermory. Three per day, taking 35 minutes. Given how remote Ardnamurchan is, this is more a way of getting there, than a way of getting to Mull.
  • Iona to Fionnphort about 9 per day, taking 10 minutes. Beware of getting wet feet boarding the ferry.

Get around

By Bus

Local buses are operated by Bowmans [3], who also run tours. Buses to Tobermory and also to IOna connect with many of he ferries at Craignure. There are no Sunday services in winter.

By Train

The Isle Of Mull Railway runs just over a mile from Craignure to Torosay, and is a tourist attraction, not a useful part of the transport system.

  • Torosay Castle
  • Duart Castle
