Ferry Hopping The Ardnamurchan Way
You are never far away from a ferry terminal when you are down Ardnamurchan way. The Ardnamurchan Peninsula is surrounded by sea on three side providing a great opportunity to hop on board and sail the CalMac way.
If you travelling from the South you will most likely encounter your first ferry at The Corran Narrows some 10 miles south of Fort William on the A82. A part of every day life, this small ferry will whisk you away to the delights of Ardgour, Ardnamurchan and Beyond...
Another hop and you're away to The Isle of Mulll. There are regular sailings from Lochaline on the Morvern Peninsula and from Kilchoan, way out west on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. A great opportunity for a day trip during your stay in and around Ardnamurchan and a great adventure to boot...
The Corran Ferry
Hop on and hop off between the A82 at Nether Lochaber and the A861 at Ardgour. No need to book - just turn up and pay on the ferry. The current price is £8.50 per crossing for cars and motorhomes. Foot passangers and pedal cycles are free. Service updates during unsettled weather are usually posted on The Corran Ferry Twitter Feed.
The ferry provides a regular service seven days a week. The sailings start at 06:30 from Nether Lochaber (The A82) and run every 20 minutes during peak morning hours and every 30 minutes during most of the day until the final sailing at 21:20 from Ardgour and 21:30 from Nether Lochaber. There are no toilet facilities on the ferry, though there are public facilites either side on Loch Linnhe. The ferry can be busy during peak periods during the summer holidays though for most of the time you should be able to catch the next ferry.
Kilchoan - Tobermory Ferry
Hop on and hop off between Kilchoan and Tobermory. No need to book - just turn up and pay on the ferry. The current price for a single crossing is £8.90 per car and £2.85 per person (£14.60 for a car with a two people in it).
There are regular sailings seven days a week during the Summer, though no sailings on Sundays during the winter timetable period. You can not book tickets and you can either buy a ticket onboard or buy one from the ticket office in Tobermory. There is usually no problem travelling as a foot passanger and there is ample parking by the ferry terminal in Kilchoan where there are also public toilet facilities. The ferry can be very busy in summer for vehicles and you may not be able to get on to the first ferry, so plan ahead and arrive early if you wish to take your car on the ferry... On your return from Tobermory you can arrive for the ferry early, park up in the queue (buy a ticket if you did not buy a return ticket) and have a walk around Tobermory whilst waiting for the ferry. The crossing takes around 30 minutes and affords some great views of Mull and Ardnamurchan.
Lochaline - Fishnish Ferry
Hop on and hop off between Lochaline in the Morvern Peninsula and Fishnish on The Isle of Mull. No need to book - just turn up and pay on the ferry. The current price for a single crossing is £7.35 per car and £2.50 per person (£12.35 for a car with a two people in it).
There are regular sailings seven days a week and the crossing takes around 15 minutes. Sailings are more frequent than between Kilchoan and Tobermory and the ferry is significantly larger so evn during busy periods during summer you should be able to get on the first ferry. There are public toilet facilities at Lochaline and there is a also lovely wee cafe by the terminal. Fishnish is well located to tour the south of Mull and West of Mull and maybe even over to Iona if you want a longer day out.
