‘The Isle of Mull’ Car Ferry, Scotland

Scroll down to content


Every holiday to the West Coast of Scotland, entails a couple of, or even more trips on car ferries.  It usually means an early morning start, but with the help of one of their bacon rolls on board, you are soon off to explore one of the beautiful Scottish Islands.  Sometime you have to catch more than one ferry to your chosen destination, but for me, the more the merrier.  There are some ferries that hold just a couple of cars, or others, that will only take foot passengers and not forgetting a sea cruise around the islands.


On this particular day in 2013, we were waiting at Craignure, on the Isle of Mull, for the ferry to take us back to Oban on the mainland.  On a beautiful sunny day it is just a pleasure to sit and wait for the ferry.  You can see it coming way off in the distance and on this occasion I took some photos of the ‘The Isle of Mull’

  1. That would be so much fun! When you live in the prairie states of the Midwestern US, you don’t get to ride ferries much. I’ve only been on ferries twice in my life. And both times I was a long way from home. The pictures are lovely. 🙂

    1. Thank you Pat, I suppose thats one thing about living on an island, we are never really that far from the sea. But you have those wonderful prairies that I would love to photograph, mind you we could come on a great big ferry and then drive the rest of the way LOL 🙂

    1. So right Jo, happy memories, I had forgotten I had taken those photos, and they took me right back when I came across them, love that when photos do that…… roll on May 🙂

  2. I have always enjoyed ferry rides…. Any boat ride on second thought. 🙂 love the mountains in the distance with the sparkling blue water.

    1. Ha ha you should be an islander, I use to have to take 2 ferry trips a day to go and come back from work when I was young…..not so good if it was really windy 🙂 But I agree with you they are enjoyable, especially in such lovely surroundings 🙂
