Owner/Operator Taxi in Tobermory, Mull

Call Alan on 07760 426351

Our modern, pleasant, air-conditioned* taxi can take a maximum of six passengers, and can usually arrange another taxi if you're more than six. I'm based in Tobermory, the island's biggest village, but cover the whole island.

* Tradition has it that it is always sunny on Mull for your maiden visit, so my inner optimist went for an air-con equipped vehicle. On the other hand, I've been involved with Mull for more than thirty years, so my inner pessimist made sure it had a good heater too...


Bespoke tours - tailored to requirements - nothing fixed or standard and we can always be flexible on the day

North Mull - can include picturesque village of Dervaig (its church is connected to the Da Vinci code - I can eplain when there), Calgary art gallery and Art in Nature (a short walk through woods with sculptures in the trees) and Calgary beach, Lip na Cloiche (unique gardens) Ulva Ferry (I will show you then unusual method of summoning the ferryman) and time in Tobermory before or after the tour.

South Mull - can include visit to Ardalanish (traditional weavers), and Isle of Iona (10 minute ferry crossing from village of Fionnphort). I try, where possible to include the stunning west coast route (Gruiban rocks).


Off island pickups not a problem - Glasgow/ Edinburgh/ Inverness airports or Glasgow/ Edinburgh/ Fort William railway stations etc.

I can pick up from anywhere on the island- from your ferry, or a cruise ship and take you where you wish to go. Perhaps you might have previous knowledge or experience of Mull and know where you would like to visit, maybe via searching online, or have no knowledge of the island at all and take advantage of my knowledge/experience.

I regularly provide Island Tours for visitors who already have their own transport, either because they wish to take advantage of my local knowledge, or that they want to concentrate on the views and not on driving, or simply that they are unfamiliar with single track roads and would rather someone else took the strain! The road in the background picture is the stunning B8035 between Pennyghael and Gruline, which (like 90% of the island) is a single track with passing places over its whole length.

Pick Ups, Drop Offs, Collect & Deliver...

Mull Taxi ferries luggage too heavy to carry between one Bed & Breakfast and another for the many people who come to Mull to enjoy walking or cycling tours, or we can drop you for your climb over our Ben and meet you on the other side. As a fully licenced 'Taxi' we can be hailed on the street, perhaps to return you to your accommodation after sampling the hospitality on the front and not fancying the steep walk up the Back Brae.


Mull has been the location for many films over the years. One of the most famous is "I know where I am going" made by Powell and Pressburger in 1945. I could take you to the locations of Carsaig (phone box under waterfall and pier looking towards fictitious island of "Kiloran" - actually Colonsay), Loch Buie (including Moy Castle) and Duart Castle.


Fares / Rates

My vehicle is a licenced taxi and, therefore, has a meter. I rarely use it. Most of my work is tours with visitors to Mull and I feel an ever increasing monetary amount in the display is an unwanted and unnecessary distraction when you are looking at fantastic scenery. I tend to work at a fixed hourly rate from home (Tobermory) to home. I explain all costs in my quote and I round down my rate for trips lasting several hours. Fare quoted is for the taxi - I never charge per person. I cannot accept payment by card, as this requires internet access, which is not always available where I stop. Cash/cheque/BACS work for me although payments from overseas can incurr bank charges for both parties. I aim to give my customers the best experience of the Isle of Mull and I advise quality before quantity but, if you become my customer, I will do everything I can to accommodate your wishes.


Isle of Mull Tours / Day Trips

Below are a few of the 'highlights reel' that you may wish to see while here on Mull, but it's not an exhaustive list - please get in touch if you'd like something different. I'd advise you not to cram too much in - a trip to beautiful Iona, for example, will take half a day by itself.
