Unique, Scottish and on the Isle of Mull
This is Scotland's original island passenger railway.
The terminal at Craignure is reached by the 80 car/1000 passenger
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.
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
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.
