Time seems to have stood still here on the sparsely populated island, which can only be reached by ferry from the mainland.
Roads are mostly single track with passing places which encourages driving at a leisurely pace, whilst looking ahead for oncoming vehicles.
Imagine our surprise on Sunday when we spotted a West Coast Motors Van Hool coach heading towards us, to Craignure from Fionnphort where ferries cross to Iona.
West Coast Motors run a variety of vehicles in various shapes and sizes. Some of the pictures below were taken at Tobermory where WCM vehicles mix with various touring coaches from the mainland.
The main bus services terminate in the coach park at the southern end of the main street.
Whilst travelling through Craignure the West Coast Motors depot was spotted so a brief visit to photograph the vehicles took place.
All major ferry services to and from the island are operated by Caledonian Macbrayne. Our return journey will be via the Craignure to Oban service shown below.
