Purchase your ticket online in advance of travel - even if you're a foot passenger. When you pre-purchase a ticket for this route, you'll be purchasing an 'open' ticket, although the system asks you for a chosen departure date, your ticket is valid only for the season in which you've purchased it, and it won't have a specific sailing time.  

Purchasing tickets online? If you purchase tickets online as a group or for any number of travel companions, the full party must travel on the same sailing. This applies to both legs of your journey. If you are unsure if all members of your group are travelling together, please complete separate transactions online.

Alternative routes to/from Bute - did you know there are two routes for travel to Bute? You can also travel from Colintraive - Rhubodach

Travelling with a bike - If you're travelling as a foot passenger and bringing your bike, please add your bike(s) to your transaction - this applies to foot passengers. This ticket will remain free of charge

Concessions and blue badge holders - SPT Ferry Card, Companion SPT Ferry Card and Blue Badge concessions are now available online, meaning they'll be applied to your ticket. This is an alternative to visiting the port office / speaking with staff. Please continue to carry your concession card or equivalent when you travel.

  • Check-in is 20 minutes prior to departure for vehicles and 10 minutes for foot passengers. Late check-in may lead to refusal of carriage.
