Mull railway coming to Balloch [Lennox Herald]

Date: 01/07/2011

BALLOCH has seen off fierce competition from other Scottish towns to bring the famous Mull rail line to the area.
The Isle of Mull railway ran from the ferry terminal at Craignure to Torosay Castle, but service was suspended after the castle was put up for sale last year.
