Your Input on New Ferry for Mull

While we are still waiting for a decision from the new Transport Minister Graeme Dey on Mull’s potential catamaran, plans are proceeding for the longer-term replacement of the MV Isle of Mull. Transport Scotland (TS) have begun the long process of planning for the ferry(ies) that will be built to replace our 33-year-old main ferry. It’ll take some years – by the time the new ferries are delivered, the MV Isle of Mull is likely to be close to 40 years old. Over the same period, Craignure pier will be replaced, so by 2027 or thereabouts we could have a completely renewed ferry service to Oban….  To help us create the Specification of User Requirements, we have set up an online survey on our website at .

We want it to reflect the broad community view as fairly as possible. So please go along and complete the survey! [Open until 30th June] ... more in the printed issue
