Ferries to and from Mull
Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) Ferries operates a large variety of vessels. If the journey time is short, facilities may be limited. Otherwise, there is a full range including dining options and areas to enjoy a hot or cold drink or engage in a spot of souvenir shopping.
Tobermory port facilities
The harbour is at the heart of Tobermory, so you'll find all amenities you could need nearby; including shops, a bank, restaurants and accommodation. The main A849 road on the Isle of Mull leads to Tobermory.
Craignure port facilities
At the pier's end is the car park for ferry traffic. Opposite is Mull's main Tourist Information Centre and the village shops. Craignure can be accessed using the A849 road which runs along Mull's East coast. Craignure is a popular access point from mainland Scotland via Oban, which is just over an hour away from Fort William by car.
Fishnish port facilities
Fishnish is a small slipway and thus there are no facilities at the port itself. From the A849 between Tobermory and Craignure, take the A884 turning for the Fishnish slipway. Bus services are available to coincide with some CalMac sailings, but not all so it is advisable to check times ahead of travel.
Fionnphort port facilities
There is a CalMac building at the port with a small tea room serving hot and cold beverages and often delicious homemade cakes. Nearby you'll find "The Ferry Shop" selling convenience items with an arts and crafts shop next-door. Fionnphort is well signposted around Mull and coach services are available due to the popularity of day trips to Mull's neighbouring island, Iona.
