Mull is a truly magical place. It has a dramatic coastline and a variety of scenery, ranging from the high basaltic plateau of the north, to the rounded granite hills of the "Ross of Mull", in the south-west. The "Ross of Mull" is unspoiled by roads. This makes it an ideal destination for bird watching and observing the unique Hebridean wildlife, which roam free in their natural environment. Explore the many white sandy coves and beaches on the "Ross" and on Iona, which are washed by the waters of the Gulf Stream. Visiting the neighbouring islands of Iona and Staffa will also be a highlight for your holiday.

Iona is a sacred Isle, steeped in Christianity and history. This famous Inner Hebridean island, only 3 miles long by a mile and a half wide, is accessible from a passenger ferry which runs between Fionnphort and Iona and takes approx 5 minutes. It possesses a unique atmosphere. Sanctuary from the bustle of life can be found at the famous abbey, which is the ancient burial ground for forty-eight Scottish Kings. Staffa - (meaning "Pillar Island"), can be reached by a short boat trip. It is one of the natural geological wonders of the world. Fingal's Cave is the most spectacular feature and was made famous by Mendelssohn's Music. Boat trips are available from Mull and Iona during the summer season, weather permitting.
