Mull is more: so much to see and do

With an area of 338 square miles (875 sq km), Mull is the second largest of the Inner hebrides and the fourth largest Scottish island.

The Isle of Mull, together with the adjacent Isles of Iona and Ulva, is simply a wonderland for those who enjoy wildlife, peaceful walks, spectacular scenery and the tranquillity of island life.

Marine wildlife is common - otters, seals, seabirds and cetaceans; inland, Red Deer quietly graze the hills and and birds of prey are abundant - including Mull's famous White-tailed Eagles, Golden Eagles and Hen Harriers. Walks take you through oak and conifer woods and along rocky sea loch shores up to the hills of the Ben More range.
