Due to the large number of visitors expected to addend this years Tiree Music Festival, the Saturday sailing from Oban to Coll / Tiree is expected to be restricted to ~500 passengers. Last year the number of passengers was ~490 so this year ALL foot passengers, car passengers & cyclists coming to Coll on this ferry are advised to BOOK - NOW - even if without a car.
CalMac aren't quite sure what to do about this and have suggested they will ask for info about your Tiree Music Festival tickets when you phone and book. Please make it clear you are not travelling to Tiree but wish to ensure you can get to Coll.
The return legs to Oban shouldn't be as busy since an extra boat calls into Tiree, diverted from Barra.
Sit in the comfort of our Lounge or, if the weather is glorious, outside in the garden and take in the view whilst relaxing with a pot of tea or coffee and of course something sweet. Tigh na Mara offers afternoon tea once a week to everyone, you don't need to be a resident, come along and enjoy the uniterrupted views.
Thursdays 2pm until 5pm from the beginning of May right through until the end of Septemeber.
