TO KILLIECHRONAN BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT.

Killiechronan isn't the easiest to reach by public transport but it is possible. There are 3 ferries to Mull, one from Oban to craignure, one from Lochaline to Fishnish and one from Ardnamurchan to Tobermory, you can catch a bus either from the ferry at Craignure or fishnish or from Tobermory. The nearest bus stop to us is Salen which is 3 miles from us, this is an hour walk from us or you can hire a bike from Salen, I am also happy to pick you up from Salen and drive you back after the trek so let me know if you'd like to arrange this.

There are a few taxi services on the island, most are based in Tobermory so add a surcharge if you want to travel from other parts of the island. If you are travelling from Tobermory though it's a good way of seeing a bit of the island as most provide a bit of a guided tour as well.

Alternatively there is a great service from the ulva ferry community transport which run a scheduled service as well as private bookings and have a 9 seater bus as well as an electric car carrying up to 4 passengers. They are available to book 7 days a week (subject to driver availability) you can phone, text, or email but you do have to book in advance.
