Supplementary information

The car marshalling lanes at Craignure have been extended and there is now a new entry point approx. 50m west of the old one. The old entry point is no longer in use.

Summer Timetable 26 April – 17 October 2021

We have published a revised timetable for the Oban – Craignure route for the period 26 April – 17 October 2021. All crossings made by the MV Coruisk – 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at 18.20 (18.10 Wednesday, 18.30 Sunday) and departing Oban at 20.00 (Monday – Saturday) and 19.30 (Sunday) have been withdrawn.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.

You can view the updated timetable here.
