The Isles of Mull and Iona

The Isle of Mull (often just called 'Mull') is the second largest of the inner Hebrides with a land area of 353 square miles (875 sq. km). The population is about 2,800. The 'capital' is the village of Tobermory, at the North end. Mull is home to the only 'Munro' (a scottish hill over 3000 feet) that requires a ferry crossing. Come over to Mull for unspoiled landscapes, pristine beaches and a wildlife extravaganza.

Come over to Mull for the culture, the coloured houses of Tobermory, the history and the geology. There's more to see and do on Mull...And plentiful accommodation: Hotels, Bed and Breakfasts, Self-catering cottages, campsites and hostels.

Winter brings shorter days, which for wildlife means much less time in which to find their food. So, for example, deer are found at lower altitudes, and eagles are more often seen.

This means that winter offers great opportunities to see wild life close up. Ideal for a short break.

Lonely Planet says: "Go wild on Mull"

Lonely Planet has listed 'going wild on Mull' in its "Europe - 40 amazing Experiences" e-book which you can download free from: Lonely Planet: Go wild on Mull

It says: "The Isle of Mull, off Scotland's west coast, offers varied landscapes and habitats, from high mountain and wild moorland to wave-lashed sea cliffs, sandy beaches and seaweed-fringed skerries. And if that wasn't enough to make you book the next boat over there, the waters around the island also offer the chance to spot some of Scotland's rarest and most dramatic wildlife, including eagles, otters, dolphins and even whales."

Lonely Planet lists Mull alongside such 'must-do' experiences as visiting the Colosseum in Rome and surfing in Lanzarote.
