Ferry to Coll and Oban
The ferry to Coll departs from Oban. After a stop in Coll, the ferry sails to the island of Tiree. CalMac Ferries is the only operator that sails on this route. Tickets can be booked in advance on this route.
- This is a popular route. To guarantee travel, Calmac strongly advises all passengers to make a reservation prior to travel – even if you're a foot passenger.
- Check-in is 45 minutes prior to departure for both vehicles and passengers.
- Oban has a good train connection with Glasgow, but due to the early departure of the ferry, the connection to the train from Glasgow is not ideal. On the way back the connection is good.
Tickets and Booking
Ferry tickets on this route can be booked through Caledonian Macbrayne Ferries. When the ferries depart and what the routes are, very much depends on the season and the crowds.
