The Isle of Mull attracts visitors throughout the year with its mixture of scenery, wildlife, history, culture and sporting events.
The Isle of Mull is accessible by ferry from three ports – Oban, Lochaline and Kilchoan. Most visitors travel on the Oban to Craignure route. From Oban, it is a 45 minute crossing across to Craignure. Situated on the crescent of Craignure Bay, our hotel is a short walk from the ferry terminal and only two kilometres from the main centre of Mull. If you are approaching from the north, you can use the Lochaline ferry which will take 15 minutes to cross to Fishnish on Mull. You can find more information about booking your ferry, timetables and any disruptions on the CalMac Ferries website.
A rail and sail service is available from Glasgow to Oban and the train station is only a short distance from the Oban ferry terminal where you can travel with CalMac Ferries as a foot, or cycle, passenger onwards to Craignure.
How can I spend my day in the Isle of Mull?
You can enjoy the views as you travel to Calgary Bay to soak up the history of the Iron Age settlement. While exploring, you may be able to spot puffins, deer and eagles - or take a sealife tour for a chance to spot a killer whale or dolphins.
The Tobermory Distillery is available for tours seven days a week where you can sample a dram of the award-winning Tobermory single malt whisky. The tours are a popular attraction, so we would recommend you book well in advance of your trip.
