Isle of Iona

This tiny island has had an influence out of all proportion to its size due to the establishment of Christianity in Scotland, England and throughout mainland Europe. The Isle of Iona’s place in history was secured when St. Colomba landed in 563 AD. You can learn more about its history by touring the Isle of Iona Abbey, its museum (carvings, manuscripts and Celtic crosses) and the ruined monastery. There are also craft shops, a good antiquarian/second-hand bookshop, several coffee shops and restaurants. The island also has some of the best walks in Scotland.

Duart Castle

Standing on a cliff top overlooking the Sound of Mull, Duart Castle is the home of the Clan Maclean. Visitors can explore the state rooms, dungeons and parapets and discover more of the history of this dramatic building. There is an excellent tea-room serving hot and cold food, and again, this could be considered one of the more beautiful walks in Scotland. www.duartcastle.com

Walks

Mull has great walks, both short along and near the roads and beaches where there are never many people and serious hikes for the hearty from the Munro of Ben More to the long rugged coastline. Some are shown on our walks page but you should be prepared as you can easily be 5-10 miles from the nearest farm and the weather can vary.

Fishing

The many rivers and lochs on Mull are home to some spectacular fish. There are plenty of Brown Trout with people having caught specimens weighing over 15lbs on the island, and Sea Trout and Salmon when the water is right. Fishing our Loch from the bank is free. There are also plenty of sea fish off the points and beaches on the farm. Fishing elsewhere on the island can be booked through www.fishingonmull.co.uk.
