Key Places - Highlands and Islands
8 day touring
Mull, is the second largest of the Hebridean islands, it has a mountainous core; the highest peak on the island is Ben More 966 m (3,169 ft). Moorland peninsulas sprawl out from the centre, the island has over 300 miles of coastline.
Mull has been inhabited since ancient times with evidence of settlements dating back to 6000BC. It is a nature lover’s idyll and one of the best places to spot rare white-tailed sea eagles, and off shore, whales, dolphins, basking sharks and other sea life.
The island’s principal town is Tobermoray; brightly painted houses are dotted along the water front. It is home to Mull’s only single malt distillery. It became a restricted area and naval base during WW2.
"Fabulous routes and scenery with quiet, many singletrack, roads. The weather was Scottish, with sun most days and rain most days - but nearly always with a wind behind! Mull..."
