Immerse yourself in Mull

The Hebridean island of Mull has so much to offer, from towering peaks to ancient castles. It also has Tobermory, easily the most attractive fishing port on the west coast of Scotland, where gaily-painted houses cluster around a sheltered bay.

Don’t miss Duart Castle, the 13-century fortress perched on a rocky outcrop or the white-tailed eagles at Loch Frisa.

Another highlight is the Isle of Staffa that lies five miles southwest of Mull. Impossibly dramatic and romantic, this uninhabited island inspired Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture. Ou can also take boat trips from Mull. Enjoy spectacular views from the sea, visit neighbouring islands and get up close and personal with a host of wildlife.

Mull & Iona Food Trail

The idea behind the Mull and Iona Food Trail, launched in 2015, is gloriously simple; a map and trail that helps you ‘eat your way round the islands with us’. As well as Mull and Iona those islands include Ulva, Gometra and Erraid, with the mainland Morvern Peninsula making a cameo too.
