Things to See & Do

Discover the Isles of Mull & Iona

Mull has it all: towering peaks, ancient castles, sparkling sands and rich cultural life. Don’t miss Duart Castle, the 13-century fortress perched on a rocky outcrop, or the white-tailed eagles at Loch Frisa. Venture out from Mull via boat to the spectacular Isle of Staffa, famous for the iconic Fingal's Cave and its local Puffin colonies. Step back in time with a visit to the Isle of Iona. This tiny island is a place of pilgrimage for many. Visit the ruins of the medieval Iona Abbey, established by St Columba when he arrived here from Ireland in his coracle in 563, is utterly absorbing. You can easily explore the rest of the island on foot, including the stunning sandy bays at its northern tip.

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.
