Isle of Mull

Let's put it to you straight; there really is no need to 'mull over' the decision on whether you should visit the Isle of Mull. This large Inner Hebridean island is full of many incredible possibilities, whether you are going for a day trip or staying a fortnight. Visit the charming town of Tobermory with its coloured houses and independent businesses and explore miles of stunning coastline with amazing wildlife. No matter what the Isle of Mull weather is like, you can experience the perfect island escape.

To the west of Mull, there are some exciting discoveries to be made. The tiny, enchanting Isle of Iona is a peaceful haven, while you can discover one of Scotland's geological wonders on a boat trip to Staffa. Mull is an ideal place to spot sealife, and in the summer months, you might even get up close to a puffin or two, or behold the incredible sight of thousands of breeding seabirds on the nearby Treshnish Isles. Looking for a longer break? With just half a day’s journey by sail and rail between them, it’s easy to combine Mull’s incredible landscapes and local food with Glasgow’s amazing cultural scene.

Mull Travel Information

Getting here 

Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) operates three car ferry services to the island. The most popular route connects Oban with Craignure, the island's main port which is located on its eastern coast. This service runs roughly every couple of hours throughout the day, but if you are planning on taking a vehicle it's advisable to book your place in advance!

Further north, you can also travel from Lochaline, on the Morvern Peninsula, to Fishnish, or take the Isle of Mull ferry from Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula to Tobermory, the largest settlement on the island.
