About Craignure Ferry Terminal

Craignure lies close to Mull's easternmost point, and it is reasonably equidistant from the island's two main destinations: Tobermory to the north and Iona to the west. It is the main terminus for the ferries from Oban.

The village, whose name means 'rock of the Yew Tree', was brought to life by the coming of the ferry service in 1964, when the modern pier was built. The original pier, built in 1894, can still be seen near the village hall.
