 Unique, Scottish and on the Isle of Mull


Balamory Feature

This is Scotland's original island passenger railway. The terminal at Craignure is reached by the 80 car/1000 passenger Isle of Mull ferry from Oban and the crossing is only 40 minutes. Oban lies just over 100 miles (160 km) from Glasgow on Scotland's west coast. The Railway Timetable links in with most ferry sailings. 

The railway is 1¼ miles (2 km) long and operates steam and diesel hauled trains to Torosay, where you can visit Scottish Baronial Torosay Castle and 12 acres (4.8 hectares) of prize-winning gardens and woodland walks. There is also a footpath from Torosay to Duart Castle (about 3 miles (4.8 km)), ancestral home of the Clan MacLean. 
The train journey is one of great beauty and the 260 mm gauge trains potter slowly alongside the Sound of Mull with extensive views of Ben Nevis, the Glencoe hills, the island of Lismore and the mass of Ben Cruachan, and the journey is completed at Torosay station. The wild flowers along the way can be spectacular, particularly the primroses, wild garlic and bluebells.
