ScotRail Connections

ScotRail have provided their next batch of timetables which will operate from 13 December 2020 - 15 May 2021. Due to low crew numbers as a result of Covid-19, ScotRail will be unable to operate a full West Highland Line timetable before May 2021. This has resulted in a few key connections being lost at Oban. These are as follows:

- No 08:25 train arrival at Oban will impact the 10:30 Oban – Colonsay departure on a Friday
