Tobermory Distillery - Tour of the Isle of Mull
About this tour
Situated on the island of Mull, Tobermory is without doubt one of Scotland's most beautiful and charming villages, a fitting home for one of Scotland's smallest and prettiest distilleries.
Built in 1798, Tobermory Distillery is the only distillery on the island and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. The distillery is quite unique to other distilleries as it produces two very distinct single malt Scotch Whiskies, Tobermory single malt and Ledaig malt. All variants are bottled at a strength of 46.3%.
Tobermory was built as a fishing port in the late 18th century and is now the main town on Mull. It is a picture-postcard of a place with the brightly painted buildings along the main street to the pier and the high woodland-fringed hills surrounding the bay. The harbour is always busy with fishing boats, yachts and the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry to and from Kilchoan.
In recent times, Tobermory has been the setting for the children's programme Balamory. After the initial success of these programmes in the UK, Balamory is now reaching a new audience in Australia.
The day tour to Tobermory encompasses some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland with views to the north of the Nevis Range and to the south the Garvellach Islands on the ferry journey from Oban.
The 2017 promotional rate for each passenger, including all ferry fares, a tour of the Tobermory Distillery and entrance to the Visitor Centre is £18.00.
