Isle of Mull

One of the largest of the Hebridean islands, the Isle of Mull offers a diverse terrain from towering 1,000 foot high sea cliffs to white sand beaches, forests and glens, where wildlife abounds.
Although the island coastline covers some 300 miles there are less than 3,000 people living on Mull, with the island’s capital town of Tobermory accounting for nearly 1,000 of those.

Mull has for many years been acknowledged as a holiday island.

Steeped in Celtic and Viking folklore and amid spectacular scenery, the island is also widely recognised as a centre for eco-tourism, with Golden and White Tailed Eagles, dolphins and basking sharks, deer, otters and puffins among the star attractions.
Reaching Mull is relatively simple – with very regular car ferries making the 45-minute crossing from Oban. Alternatively, there are also ferry links with Lochaline and Kilchoan. Accommodation is plentiful and ranges from modern hotels to comfortable bed and breakfast within local homes or self-catering establishments, campsites, hostels and bunkhouses.
For the younger visitor, Tobermory will still be recognised as the setting for children’s television town Balamory.

Iona

Follow in St Columba’s footsteps and visit the tiny island of Iona.
The abbey buildings were restored and today are the centre of a thriving Christian community but the nunnery remains a haunting ruin.

Every year thousands of people visit the island which welcomes them all and still retains its tranquillity. Perhaps it’s the white beaches which on a summer’s day could trick you into thinking they’re Mediterranean.
Iona is the birthplace of Scottish Christianity and the resting place of Scottish kings in its graveyard.
Today the island is home to a small but thriving population and offers excellent accommodation, eating places and a new craft centre.

You can walk the island in a day or take one of the sea trips to Staffa and Fingal’s Cave or perhaps stay a little longer to soak up some of that peacefulness.

This map also takes a closer look at the villages of  Salen and Tobermory in the north, Craignure in the east, where the ferry from Oban arrives and Bunessan and Fionnphort in the south, the latter being the village from which Iona is reached by ferry.
