The beauty of the Isle of Mull is that it is so accessible, being placed only a short ferry journey (45 mins) from the port of Oban on the Scottish mainland which has very good public transport links. As such, the Isle of Mull has everything that you’d hope from an island community, yet has the benefit of not being far-flung or out of the way in any sense.
You will travel through some of Scotland’s most fabulous scenery, lush forests, vast heather clad hillsides and along dramatic sea lochs. Mull Magic can organise transfers with a private driver from Glasgow Central Railway Station, Glasgow Airport and and Craignure ferry. Please telephone or e-mail for further details and prices.
