About Kerrera Slip (mainland)

Known affectionately as the 'Kerry Ferry', the small ferryboat runs frequently across the narrow Sound of Kerrera to the island. The mainland slipway is on the road to Gallanach, about two miles south of the centre of Oban. In summer, the ferry operates between 08.40 and 18.00; the ferry can be summoned by turning the board (at the top of the slipway) to black. In the winter, fixed sailings apply, at 08.40, 10.30, 12.30, 14.00, 16.00 and 17.00. Of course, prevailing weather conditions may force the cancellation of sailings. More details on sailing times can be seen here.

The Isle of Kerrera Development Trust is actively encouraging tourism and development to this small island, the north end of which lies directly opposite the town of Oban.
