Isle of Mull, Argyll and Bute

The Isle of Mull is full of many incredible possibilities, whether you are going for a day trip or staying a fortnight. Nestled close to the western mainland, it’s the third largest island in Scotland and one of the most accessible, being served by three ferries.

The Isle of Mull has earned a deserved reputation as one of the best places to see wildlife in the United Kingdom. It is the abundance of species and diversity of habitat that draws many visitors back again and again. Eagles, otters, and red deer are a common draw, as is the fact that the island is one of the best places to see whales.

The islands of Mull and Iona can be a wilderness awaiting discovery, a haven of peace and relaxation or simply a charming and beautiful centre for a Highland holiday away from the cares and pressures of modern life. This is a fantastic place for a gateway, with excellent walking, fishing and outdoor pursuits, all set in spectacular scenery. There is abundant wildlife and many attractions to visit during your stay as well as lots of fantastic places to eat. There are dramatic bays and beaches scattered along the three hundred miles of superb coastline with exceptional beaches at Calgary and on the Ross of Mull.

Accessible by ferry from Oban, Lochaline, or Kilchoan, there is plenty for visitors to see and do. Mull boasts attractive villages and mountains, and there are castles to visit for those wanting a more relaxing time. The island seems larger than it appears on a map, because of the limitations of the mostly single track road network: though many find this part of the attraction.

You will find the people you meet on Mull to be extremely welcoming and friendly. From Oban, on the mainland, where many visitors arrive on their way to the Isle of Mull and Iona, the seaward view is dominated by the rocky peaks and green slopes of the Mull mountains.
