Fionnphort, on the tip of the Ross of Mull, is an ideal centre for exploring the Ross itself, and for visiting the islands of Staffa (Fingal's Cave), Lunga (for bird-watching) and, of course, Iona. With a population slightly over 150 (including the surrounding area), Fionnphort has just one pub and one shop with post office. The Keel Row (pub) serves excellent food; it is often very busy, so it's better to get there early.

How to get here

The principal car ferry runs from Oban to Craignure (Mull). There are up to six sailings a day in summer (Easter to mid-October). In winter, two to four sailings per day, according to the day of the week. Other ferries run to Mull from Lochaline (Morvern) and Kilchoan (Ardnamurchan).

Maolbhuidhe is about 50-60 minutes drive from Craignure.  Follow the signs for Fionnphort / Iona ferry.  A service bus meets most (but not all) ferries. Detailed directions
