Description

Mull is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides, its moorland peninsulas radiating out from a rugged heart of mountains and fringed by impressive coastal cliffs.

Mull and Iona are both easily reached by short ferry journeys. The irregular shape of Mull covers over 800 sq km with its convoluted coastline stretching for nearly 500km, but all this vast space is home to less than 3000 people. This gives a clue to the wild nature of the island, with a feeling of vastness and space that is greatly enhanced by the narrow, twisting island roads. It is perhaps no surprise that the island has become famed for its wildlife, with sea eagles soaring over all that magnificent terrain, roamed by red deer, and with otters, dolphins and seals frequently seen from the shore.
