Mull | Isobel Thompson

About

The second-largest island in the Inner Hebrides is famous for its stunningly diverse environments and wide array of wildlife. When planning your trip, make sure you check out the island's six distinct regions, as each one has its own unique offering – from dramatic rugged coastlines to stunning silver sand beaches and beautiful harbour towns to wild locations.

Famous For

  • Mull is often referred to as 'Eagle Island' due to the common sightings of white-tailed and golden eagles.

  • The island has great taste! Check out local produce such as the delicious biscuits from Island Bakery and the award-winning Isle of Mull Cheese for a start, then follow the local food trail or pop by the monthly food fairs at Bailscate during the summer.

  • Mull has its very own Munro. Ben More makes for the mountainous centre of the island and offers stunning views across the Inner Hebrides on a clear day.

Ask an Islander

  • The Hebridean Whale Trail is a land-based trail highlighting breathtaking places along our shores that look out across three sites on Mull where whales, dolphins and wondrous creatures roam.

  • Mull Aquarium, Europe’s first catch-and-release aquarium, showcases local marine life that is kept for a maximum of one month before returning to its natural habitat.

* The months of March and October are a great time to visit. The island is quieter, while there are still plenty of activities to enjoy.
