Craignure Ferry Terminal & the MV Isle of Mull

Ferries are a fact of life on the west coast of Scotland. For me, they are always associated with family holidays when I was a boy, but for many people, they are essential for working and doing business. The MV Isle of Mull has been sailing back and forth between Mull and Oban for over 30 years (it is nearly as old as me). The boat is functional and the food is basic but brilliant, but the service it provides is vital.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland.  It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too!  To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
