Mull is deservedly well known as a holiday island, with superb walking,
fishing and outdoor pursuits amid spectacular scenery. There is abundant
wildlife on land, in the surrounding seas and in the air – elements of a
rare natural environment that bring many people to visit and to live.
Mull has plenty of
activities to offer. Try a boat trip to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles to
see puffins, or sail further out to go whale watching.
Be driven around by wildlife experts and be shown how to spot
otters, seals, eagles and buzzards.
Play golf on beautifully maintained courses, fish in the sea or in the
rivers and lochs.
Just a short crossing on the ferry from Fionnphort, the Isle
of Iona is a popular destination for many people each year.
Since St Columba travelled over from Ireland and established
his monastery in the 6th Century, the island has been a place of
pilgrimage for Christians from all over the world.
Iona is also a beautiful island to explore on foot or by
bicycle (cars not allowed). You can take boat trips from
here to the smaller islands.
There are many craft
producers on Iona either with their own outlets or with work
available in the various craft/gift shops.
