Lochaline-Fishnish ferry best

We have just arrived back from our week at Bayview.
We thought Scotland was wonderful and the area that the cottage is in was tremendous. We managed to do lots during the week - probably too much - and found your cottage information most useful. We took your advice in going to Mull, using the two shorter ferry crossings on the way there and the Oban ferry on the return, and had a great day.
Over the week we did plenty of walking and managed some biking on Lismore Island, which we thought was delightful.
From Tony and Jan.

People pile in to Oban to get the ferry to Mull. Wrong. The Oban ferry is very full, particularly the 10.00am and they are every two hours. From Glencoe to Mull by far the best way is to get the little Corran Ferry first, then over the lovely hills to Lochaline, wait there for the frequent ferry, no booking needed, and you arrive halfway towards Tobermory at Fishnish.
It is also by far the cheapest way to take the car to Mull.
