Isle of Mull

What's the story in Tobermory?


The Isle of Mull, like its surrounding islands, has a long history of human settlement; but the evidence of its history is uniquely well preserved.

Home to six castles, a stone circle, the remains of brochs and the Macquarie Mausoleum, there is plenty to see and do.

For family fun, you can download a Mull and Iona Quest pack - visit some of the sites and attractions around the islands to gather clues, before returning your pack to the Craignure Visitor Centre to receive a certificate and prize to remind you of your holiday.

Tiroran Community forest is another great spot for the whole family to enjoy; the forest contains a playground, and encompasses an abandoned township. There are nature trails and walks, with stunning views of the natural landscape and local wildlife, alongside artist renderings in sculpture.

A wide variety of wildlife tours are available, by land and sea. If you're more for dry land but don't want to miss out, visit Europe's first catch-and-release aquarium in Tobermory, where animals are kept for a maximum of four weeks before being re-released into the wild.
