Visitors to Oban using the Caledonian Sleeper rail service will be able to use a direct bus connection from Crianlarich to Oban.

The bus service, operated by West Coast Motors, has been funded by Transport Scotland and will run from July until October.

Ryan Flaherty, Serco’s managing director at Caledonian Sleeper, said: “We are firmly committed to supporting Scotland’s tourist destinations and this bus link provides an easy way for guests travelling from London to reach Oban and beyond."

The service is exclusively available to guests of the Caledonian Sleeper and will highlight the transport links available to connect travellers with the islands that can be accessed directly from Oban.

Andrew MacNair, head of marketing at CalMac Ferries, said: “We are delighted to work with Caledonian Sleeper and West Coast Motors again to make it easier for people travelling to and from Oban and the islands we serve get to their end destination.”

The Oban bus service will run at the following times;

  • 8.30pm from Monday to Friday

A return service will also run in the mornings of Monday to Saturday in line with the Caledonian Sleeper timetable.
