Craignure is a village on the Isle of Mull, Scotland, and also the main ferry port on the island, giving islanders access to Oban on the mainland. There are two castles in the vicinity, Duart which is home to the Chief of the Clan Maclean. It was the Chief of the Clan’s home for around three hundred years before it was confiscated after the Jacobite Rebellion, but in 1911, the then Chief of the Clan bought it and it is once again in Maclean hands. Torosay Castle is actually a Victorian edifice, now privately owned after being sold in 2012.

Accidents on ferry boats
If you are travelling on a ferry boat to one of Scotland’s islands, you might slip, trip or fall and be injured. If you can prove that you slipped because there was liquid or food in the bar area which should have been cleaned up, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim, as the staff may have been negligent.
If you slipped and grabbed a handrail which came away in your hand, you may also be entitled to make a claim for your injuries, as all handrails should be firmly secured. Also the deck should have an anti-slip coating, but if this is worn away in places, it will not provide you with adequate protection, and you may be able to make a claim for your injuries against the owners of the boat who are responsible for the maintenance of the boat if you are injured because of this.
