Treasured for its brightly coloured ‘Balamory’ houses and white-tailed sea eagles
Mull really does have it all. If wildlife is your thing, there are creatures in abundance, and if you like history there’s no shortage of castles and standing stones. Then there's the ever-changing rugged and dramatic coastline - wild and beautiful at every turn.
The island’s magnificent coastline is characterised by dramatic cliffs, natural arches, and sensational sandy bays.
If you prefer to stay on dry land and don't want to miss out, Mull is home to Europe's first catch-and-release aquarium in Tobermory. The animals are kept for a maximum of four weeks before being released into the wild.
Set within the Inner Hebrides this is a Scottish Galapagos, with bird-of-prey tours, whale-watching, otter quests and boat trips to the puffin-covered Treshnish Isles. The island’s magnificent coastline is characterised by dramatic cliffs, natural arches, and sensational sandy bays.
Tobermory is the largest town on Mull, and is the inspiration for the setting of the BBC’s classic children’s show ‘Balamory’. The brightly coloured buildings nestled on the waterfront are home to traditional pubs, fresh seafood eateries, artisan shops, and nature trails. Not forgetting the whisky distillery too.
Mull has a long history of human settlement that’s been uniquely well-preserved. It’s home to six castles including the 700-year-old Duart Castle, the seat of Clan MacLean, and Glengorm Castle with a charming gallery cafe serving delicious fresh treats. Visitors to the island can also explore its fascinating stone circle, the remains of ancient brochs, and the Macquarie Mausoleum.
