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 09:00 Oban - Lismore departure Monday - Friday & 11:00 Oban – Lismore departure on a Saturday
- No 20:37 train departure from Oban will impact the 19:10 arrival in Oban from Lismore Monday - Friday & the 18:55 arrival in Oban from Lismore on a Saturday
