To come visit us on Erraid you can fly to Glasgow or Edinburgh and from there make your way to Oban by bus or train. From Oban you take a ferry to Craignure on Mull. On Craignure you catch the local bus to Fionnphort. (Please make sure that the ferry you choose connects to the bus service on Mull.) Please let us know several days in advance at what time you will be arriving in Fionnphort so we can come and pick you up in our mini bus. We will take you to our jetty on Mull and then over to Erraid by boat, which is only a five minute boat ride.
If you are going to visit us in the wintertime, please make sure that you will be in Fionnphort around 2pm as we need to boat you over to Erraid in the daylight. Please find more information about travelling in winter here.

The beauty of travelling to Erraid
Travelling on Mull allows you to enjoy one of the most spectacular landscapes in Scotland. You pass tiny fishing villages nestled into the shores of sea lochs, beautiful serene hillsides, mountains and glens. Maybe you will spot some of Mull’s abundant wildlife, like eagles, hawks, buzzards, seals, dolphins, otters or deer, and you will definitely see lots of sheep, Highland cattle and pigs along the way…
