  1. Hi
    We are travelling from Australia to UK in September, and we are after ferry info that has sailing times between Tobermory and Kilchoan. We need to be in Fort William by 12.30pm on Sunday Sept 24th , so would need to catch a 9am ferry that day – I can't see what time the ferry crossings start, the ferry company just says “available all day”

  2. Hi Doug,

    We double-checked, and the first ferry from Tobermory to Kilchoan departs at 7:20, there is also a ferry leaving at 9:30. If you pick that one you arrive at Kichoan at 10:05, it will be a 2-hour drive (at least) so you will arrive at ~12:15 at Fort William. The timing all depends a bit on how strict the 12:30 is. If you take the 7:20 you'll have much more time to take it easy =)

  5. Hello – wanting to book ferry from Oban to Isle of Mull with a vehicle. Question is, do I purchase a ‘vehicle' ticket by itself or do I also need to buy 2 passenger tickets (as well as the car ticket)? Guess that depends if you are allowed to sit in your car? Just wanting to buy now. Thank you!
