Discover the beauty of the Isle of Mull

The Isle of Mull is a place of incredible beauty and historical interest. It is accessible by ferry from Oban, Lochaline and Kilchoan and boasts a number of attractive villages, scenic mountains and stunning castles. Most visitors find sightseeing here to be a somewhat relaxing activity which can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

The largest settlement to be found here is Tobermory. This small village was originally founded as a fishing station but is now a popular tourist stop. Its colorful buildings and sea-side setting make it a great holiday spot. Not too far away, you’ll find the coastal village of Craignure which is also a ferry stop. For something different, you could try taking the Mull Railway to Torosay Castle for a tour of the 19th century structure and a picnic lunch in its gracious gardens.

The roads between Craignure and Tobermory are generally remote and narrow. The surrounding vegetation can be quite wild. If you keep going past Tobermory, you’ll pass Dervaig, then find the beach at Calgary. The Isle’s interior is quite mountainous and is home to Ben More – the only Munro outside the Scottish mainland.

Less than a mile off the southwest tip of Mull you will find the Isle of Iona, a place of international pilgrimage and of great interest to the average visitor. Other surrounding islands are Tiree and Coll. Tiree is known for its sandy beaches and good sunshine while Coll has the additional lure of prehistoric relics such as standing stones and Souterrain. Certainly the Isle of Mull and its surrounding islands are worth a visit and make for a great holiday spot if you are looking for something wilder, prettier and more remote than the rest of Scotland.
