Transport - getting to Druimard
The Isle of Mull lies off the West coast of Scotland and is most easily reached by using the regular ferry service which runs from the busy town of Oban. The ferry lands at Craignure on the Isle of Mull after a short trip of about forty minutes. The map below shows where Mull is in relation to the rest of Scotland.
Dervaig is in the North West corner of Mull at the head of Loch Cuin. It is easily reached from Craignure by turning right from the ferry terminal and then following the main road towards Salen. From Salen, head north towards Tobermory, the main village in Mull, until you reach a junction about a mile north of Salen. Take the left fork, signposted Dervaig and keep going for about 8 miles. You will soon be in Dervaig. The map below shows the main Mull roads.
Druimard house is about 1 mile before Dervaig on the right hand side of the road.
