Traveling to Seaview by Train and Bus


The West Coast Railway is perhaps the most beautiful train journey in Britain. The service from Glasgow's Queen Street Station passes along Loch Long and Loch Lomond before climbing into the mountains, where at the tiny village of Crianlarich, the train splits - half moving north to Fort William and on to Mallaig for Access to Skye, while the other half travels west to Oban for access to Mull and the rest of the Hebridean Islands.

Oban Railway Station is only a couple of minutes walk from the Ferry Pier, where Caledonian MacBrayne operate ferry services to many of the Hebridean Islands, including Mull. Services generally run every two hours from Oban to Craignure on Mull.
