Set satnav for ‘Dervaig’ or PA756QW
The main ferry to Mull leaves from Oban.
We would recommend booking as far in advance as possible. However, you can travel without reservations if there is space available.
There are also two smaller ferry routes running to Mull from Lochaline and Kilchoan.
You can not book these ferries, just turn up and queue.
For all up-to-date ferry information and bookings, visit Caledonian MacBrayne’s website.
Driving from Craignure:
Turn right leaving the ferry terminal. Drive to Salen. Approximately 2 miles north of Salen you will reach ‘Aros Bridge’ where the road splits. Bear left for Dervaig. At Dervaig you will reach a junction next to the Church, Tigh-Na-Mara B&B is across the road from this junction.
Driving from Fishnish (Lochaline ferry):
Follow the road from the ferry which will take you to the main road. Turn right to Salen etc.
Driving from Tobermory (Kilchoan ferry):
Coming off the ferry at the Calmac Pier, follow the road straight ahead along Tobermory Main Street and onwards uphill until you reach a mini roundabout. Take the second exit and follow the signs for Dervaig. Dervaig village is a single street that splits off to the right at the Bellachroy Hotel. Do not go down this road – continue straight ahead and you will come to the junction by the church.
Tigh-Na-Mara B&B is on your right on the opposite side of the road from the church.
Travelling to and on Mull using public transport:
Daily services run for both train and coach to Oban from Glasgow but using public transport can be tricky on the island. A comprehensive guide has been compiled which is available online at www.mict.co.uk (follow the ‘travel’ link on the left side of the page).
Driving on single track roads:
The majority of the island’s roads are single track. Passing places are there for cars to pass and also to allow overtaking. Always keep to the left. If a passing place is on the right, wait opposite it on the left hand side of the road. Please do not park in passing places and please let other drivers overtake. The car behind might be a doctor, midwife, vet, or member of the fire brigade or lifeboat crew. Leaflets about driving on single tracks are usually available on the Craignure-Oban ferry.
