Immerse yourself in Mull and Iona

Mull has it all: towering peaks, ancient castles, sparkling sands and a rich cultural life. It also has Tobermory, easily the most attractive fishing port on the west coast of Scotland. Don’t miss Duart Castle, the 13-century fortress perched on a rocky outcrop, or the white-tailed eagles at Loch Frisa. 

Iona sits less than a mile off the south western-most tip of Mull. This tiny island, a cradle of Christianity in Great Britain, is a place of pilgrimage for many. The ruins of the medieval abbey, established by St Columba when he arrived here from Ireland in his coracle in 563, are utterly absorbing. Visit local Mull & Iona website
