The ferry from Oban to Mull
The short crossing from Fionnphort to Iona
Dolphin in the Sound of Iona
Most people get here via Oban, a town and port some 90 miles north west of Glasgow. From there it's a 45 minute ferry crossing to Craignure on the Isle of Mull, an hour long journey by bus or car to Fionnphort, followed by a 10 minute ferry crossing to Iona. It may sound complicated, but visitors assure us it's worth the effort!
