Car travel and public transport to reach Mull, and around the island
Plan your train journey from Glasgow Queen Street to Oban with ScotRail.
Citylink coaches run to Oban from Glasgow Buchanan Street Bus Station. For the public bus (coach) service on Mull and around Oban, see West Coast Motors timetables. Note that the Summer & Winter bus timetables correspond to the same seasonal CalMac ferry timetable dates - this has not always been evident on the bus timetables or website.
For private taxi cabs on Mull see the services listed here. Book in advance when possible.
Within Mull and around Ardnamurchan and Morvern, please remember that car journey times on single track roads can be significantly longer than you may be used to! As an example, the trip from Tobermory to Fionnphort (60 miles) for the Iona ferry can take one and a half hours.
Taking your car to Mull? Visit Mull & Iona's Guide to driving on the island's single track roads.
Keep an eye on the weather as Mull ferry crossings can often be cancelled in severe conditions, depending on the wind direction and sea swell.
