Had planned to tour the area and started making outline plans, only to find no dogs permitted - quite well hidden as the Ts&Cs not obviously linked from the front dog.

With no alternative available, no option but to abandon all plans after several wasted hours.

May I ask why the company has a zero animal policy (not even "small animals in travel cages" that Citilink have) when there is zero alternative available?
I've made over 10,000 journeys with dogs on Stagecoach services here - no exaggeration - with precisely zero problem compared to several issues with drunk and obnoxious individuals over the years who appear to have no restrictions as long as they don't get "too out of hand".

Seriously disappointed...

I took this company's coach between Kennacraig and Campbeltown.
He opened and drank a bottle of soda, ate a sandwich and some pills while driving.
This is a road with many bends and this is fully unacceptable.
It seems (reported by a local) that it already happened.

Great tour, well worth the price you pay for it, ferry, bus, ferry/boat, then boat/ferry depending on how it works out for you, we had get the ferry to Iona then the boat to Staffa, our driver Colin is very knowledgeable about Mull & a very curteous driver, getting through the tight bridges was impressive, I didn't realise until heading back for the ferry back to Oban that I have previously worked with Colin, it was really nice to see him again & really enjoyed listening to the stories of the Isle

I have used the bus between Glasgow and Campbeltown on a number of occasions, most recently on 23 August. As on previous journeys the bus kept good time and driver was friendly and helpful. This is a long bus ride through mountainous, lochside and coastal scenery with some great views. The bus takes a ten minute break in Inverary where there are toilets and a shop.
