Oban (OBA) - Craignure (CRA)
Last Updated: 17 May 2021 16:36
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at 18.20 (18.10 Wednesday, 18.30 Sunday) and departing Oban at 20.00 (Monday – Saturday) and 19.30 (Sunday) have been withdrawn.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.

If you plan to travel, we look forward to welcoming you. COVID-19 guidance remains in place:
Be prepared. Before travel, check what coronavirus protection level applies to your area through the gov.scot postcode checker
Plan ahead. Our capacity remains restricted. Where possible, book prior to travel, even if you’re a foot passenger.

13 December 2020 - 15 May 2021
Scotrail have provided their next batch of timetables which will operate from 13 December 2020 - 15 May 2021. Due to low crew numbers as a result of Covid-19, ScotRail will be unable to operate a full West Highland Line timetable before May 2021. This has resulted in a few key connections being lost at Oban. These are as follows:
- No 08:25 train arrival at Oban will impact the 09:30 Oban - Craignure departure on a Monday, 09:55 Oban – Craignure departure Tue – Fri & 10:30 Oban – Craignure departure on a Saturday
- No 20:37 train departure from Oban will impact the 20:26 arrival in Oban from Craignure Tuesday & Friday
Payment Information - Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not accepting cash payment for ticket transactions. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Apple, Google or Samsung Pay. If you need assistance, please speak with a member of staff.
Port Opening Hours – We are operating reduced opening hours at some of our Ports. Check before you travel.
Food and Drink - From 26 April, we'll be increasing the food & drink options on offer to our customers. Find out what will be available on this route here.
