More about Mull

Ideal for:

Nature & wildlife History & heritage

Exceptional wildlife, whisky, and pristine beaches

Mull is wild and beautiful. 300 miles of dramatic coastline, including some excellent beaches, and a castle that's appeared in several films. You might recognise the main town, Tobermory, from the Balamory children's TV show - you can't miss the harbour's brightly painted houses as you arrive on the ferry from Kilchoan.

The An Tobar arts centre sells lots of arts and crafts to take home, and if you head further afield you can spot puffins, dolphins, and otters, or explore the Lochbuie stone circle and MacKinnon's cave. Mull is the gateway to Iona, which is perfect for a day trip. The Tobermory distillery has some excellent malts, too, if you like a dram.

For more information on Mull visit Explore Argyll's  or Holiday Mull's website.
