Colonsay: Oban-Colonsay-Port Askaig

Valid from 29 March - 20 October 2024

Fèis Ìle Update - We will be running additional sailings for visitors travelling to and from Islay's Fèis Ìle in May and June 2024, following consultation with local communities, and other routes will be temporarily impacted as a result. Please see full timetable details here.

Port Askaig Closure 19 June 2024 until 30 July 2024: From 19 June - 30 July, an amended timetable will be in operation on this route to allow for the next phase of Caledonian Maritime Asset Limited's (CMAL) infrastructure works at Port Askaig Ferry Terminal. This timetable is also relevant for those who are intending to travel to/from Colonsay during that period as well as Islay. Read our customer update for further details - including information on how we'll support customers during the period. During this period, CMAL will close Port Askaig to allow the enabling works to go ahead -  while Argyll and Bute Council will also carry out works alongside -  all of which will accommodate the increased capacity of new, future vessels. Full timetable details can be found below. Those customers who have bookings between 19 June - 30 July who are affected, will be contacted by our team who are working in date order. Thank you for your patience while we do this. Any customers travelling Kennacraig - Port Ellen - Colonsay instead of Oban - Colonsay will be paying the same fare as they would on their normal route.

Tiree Music Festival - An amended timetable will operate on certain days between 10 - 17 July to accommodate Tiree Music Festival - View the amended timetable
