Traveling to Mull by Road


The shortest route for those coming by car from the south is either by the M6/A74/M8/A82 to Crianlarich and Oban, or via Stirling and Callander to Crianlarich if traveling from the east coast. Whether you reach Oban by road or rail, the next stage is to take the car ferry to Craignure.

Alternatively, coming by way of Glencoe, Ballachulish Bridge and Corran Ferry, you can use the Lochaline - Fishnish car ferry: since this cannot be booked, at busy times you should not travel too late in the day. Timetables and other information can be obtained from Caledonian MacBrayne (Oban), Telephone +44 (0) 800 066 5000 . If you plan to take your car onto the Oban - Craignure ferry you should book both ways during the summer.

Which ever route you take towards Scotland's beautiful west coast you will pass through some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. In order to give us time to prepare for new visitors, we normally ask that departures should not be later than 10am and arrival at the property not earlier than 4pm Saturday .

If you are traveling from Oban to Craignure the you should turn right off the ferry linkspan and head towards Salen and Tobermory. If you are traveling on the Lochaline to Fishnish ferry you should travel up the ferry road to the T junction and then make a right turn towards Salen and Tobermory.

Having turned right you will eventually arrive at a village named Salen travel straight through the village towards Tobermory and in about half a mile you will be traveling alongside the river inlet with the water on your right. After about 500 metres the road forks with one side turning sharp right over a bridge to Tobermory. Follow the left hand road which continues straight ahead, It is signposted for Dervaig. This road is eleven miles long and as you come to the far end of the Glen on the edge of Dervaig you will see a white farm house on your right. Pass the track for the farm and 2 further tracks on the right. 100 yards after all these tracks you will see the cottage on the right with a blue wooden fence. Parking is directly opposite the cottage on a purpose made area.
