Summer experiences

Mull and Iona were made for summer holidays! Both islands have beautiful beaches by the bucket (and spade!) load. St Columba’s Bay at the south end of Iona is a glorious spot, where you’ll find richly coloured pebbles. Mull’s coastline is dotted with sandy bays lapped by turquoise water and backed by forest.

What’s more, Mull’s beaches are crowd-free, even at the height of summer. There are lots of fabulous visitor attractions too, from ruined castles to ancient sites. Take a boat trip to see the wonderful local wildlife, climb a Munro, go to an event and follow the Mull and Iona Food Trail.
