Ferry Travel

From 26 April 2021, people will be able to travel to Argyll and Bute’s islands and we look forward to welcoming you back. The Scottish Government is encouraging anyone planning to visit a Scottish Islands to test for coronavirus prior to travel. We would ask you to consider taking these tests to keep yourself and the communities your visit safe.

Due to the the large number of islands and peninsulas in Argyll and Bute, ferry travel is an important part of our transport network, for both residents and tourists alike.

The ferry timetables section gives you details and times for the routes throughout the area. You can also see the prices of some of the Council operated ferry services.
