Valid from 26 April - 17 October 2021
Following discussion with Transport Scotland, our Winter timetable has been extended to 25 April, with Summer Timetable commencing 26 April 2021. This is in response to the First Minister confirming that Covid-19 restrictions will continue to be in place until at least April.
Please see winter timetable Mull: Oban - Craignure
We have published a revised timetable for the Oban-Craignure route for the period 26 April - 17 October 2021.
As detailed in the new timetable, crossings which are to be made by the MV Coruisk - which are indicated by the letter 'A' - will take an additional five minutes, and this vessel's last round trip of the day, departing Craignure at 18.20 (18.10 Wednesday, 18.30 Sunday) and departing Oban at 20.00 (Monday - Saturday) and 19.30 (Sunday) have been withdrawn.
This change is being applied for operational reasons; we need to provide the necessary rest periods for our crew on the MV Coruisk due to the slightly extended passage time. The extended passage time is needed to allow the vessel to switch to a manual control before berthing.
All crossings undertaken by the MV Isle of Mull on this route are unaffected.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and are in the process of contacting customers whose reservations made prior to 12 April are affected. Please see the updated timetable below.
Due to the reduced capacity of this vessel and to guarantee travel during this period, we strongly advise all passengers make a reservation prior to travel - especially if you're a foot passenger.
Check-in is 30 minutes prior to departure for vehicles and 10 minutes for foot passengers - otherwise space will be reallocated. Late check-in may also lead to the vehicle being refused carriage.
Food and Drink - A phased reopening of our food and drink offering is now available on some of our routes and options will vary depending on the vessel.
Please ensure you take the time to read all our latest travel guidelines and safety information prior to your journey. Customers are reminded to wear a face covering when travelling with us on the ferry, and at our port offices, unless exempt.
Camping/Motorhomes - At the request of Visit Mull and Iona, we have been asked to advise our customers visiting these islands that you have a suitable pitch or campsite booked before you travel. Please ensure you have agreed overnight provisions prior to travel to the islands.
Motorcycle: Single - £7.15/Return - 14:30
Pedal cycles (restricted numbers): Single - Free/Return - Free
- Groups of 6 or more pedal cycles must inform the relevant port office in advance of travel. It should be noted that as we may not be able to offer the first sailing of choice, therefore groups may not always be able to travel together
- Light goods vehicles exceeding 6 metres in length or 3.5 tonnes in weight, or 3 metres in height, or 2.3 metres in width are charged at commercial vehicle rate
Scotrail have provided their next batch of timetables which will operate from 13 December 2020 - 15 May 2021. Due to low crew numbers as a result of Covid-19, ScotRail will be unable to operate a full West Highland Line timetable before May 2021. This has resulted in a few key connections being lost at Oban. These are as follows:
- No 0825 train arrival at Oban will impact the 0955 Oban - Craignure departure Monday - Saturday
- No 1942 train arrival at Oban will impact the 2000 Oban - Craignure departure Monday - Saturday
- No 2037 train departure from Oban will impact the 2021 arrival in Oban from Craignure Monday - Saturday
