From Craignure

Turn left when you come off the ferry at Craignure. Follow the single track road (signed Iona Ferry and/or Fionnphort) for 32 miles. You will pass through Pennyghael (17 miles), and reach Bunessan (32 miles). In Bunessan turn left immediately before the Argyll Arms Hotel.
Go up the hill past the houses, and take the first left turn, signed 'Uisken'. Newcrofts is the first group of houses on the right.

From Tobermory, Salen or Fishnish

Take the road south-east to Craignure, then follow the directions above

From the North West Coast of Mull (scenic route)

From North of Loch na Keal (e.g. Calgary, Torloisk, Ulva, Gruline), the quickest way is to take the road along the south shore of Loch na Keal, via Gribun, to Kinloch, where you turn right for Fionnphort/Iona. The scenery is outstanding.

From the Dervaig area take the road to Salen and Craignure

Maps

Mull fits inconveniently onto three OS Landranger (1:50,000) maps (47, 48 & 49, with large overlap between 47 & 48) We are on Sheet 48 (Iona & West Mull), Grid Ref NM375213, and also on the Explorer Series (1:25,000) Sheet 373 (Iona, Staffa & Ross of Mull)

How to get to Mull

By ferry from Oban to Craignure.
Up to six sailings a day in summer (easter to mid-October). Two to four sailings per day in winter, according to the day of the week. Newcrofts is about 50 minutes drive from Craignure. A service bus meets some ferries and will drop you in Bunessan.

There are also ferries from Morvern (Lochaline-Fishnish) and Ardnamurchan (Kilchoan-Tobermory).

Motoring on Mull

Many of the roads on Mull are single track, so be prepared and always keep to the left when passing other vehicles.  Pull in to allow faster traffic to overtake.  Your average speeds will be lower, so allow plenty of time (about fifty minutes from Craignure to Bunessan, 32 miles)  

Petrol (gasoline) is even more expensive than on the mainland, so fill your tank before the ferry. There's a 24-hour filling station at Dunbeg, between Connel and Oban. The Oban Tesco (supermarket) also has a filling station.

On Mull there are petrol stations at Craignure (2), Salen, Tobermory and between Bunessan and Fionnphort (2).
