Craignure, a lovely village on the Isle of Mull, is in fact the island’s main ferry terminal, with crossings every day to Oban.
There are six crossings a day in peak season, and in the winter this reduces to three or five, depending on demand and the weather.
Craignure’s original pier was built in 1894, but this was replaced by a new one in 1964.
There isn’t just one, but two castles near to Craignure. Duart Castle (Caisteal Dhubhairt in Scottish Gaelic) was the seat of Clan MacLean and dates back to the 13th century. The castle is in disrepair, but an appeal to restore it was launched in 2014.
The second castle is Torosay Castle. Torosay was completed in 1858 and although it is no longer open to the public, it is still an impressive building to take a look at in passing.
This is where the world’s oldest bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne was discovered, locked in a cabinet. The bottles dates back to 1893, and is thought to have been in the cupboard since 1897. It was discovered in 2008.
