Things to see & do on Mull & Iona

A sheer paradise for lovers of Scotland's natural heritage, Mull is an island gem, with an enviable diversity of wildlife thriving everywhere from dense woodland glens to the grassy slopes of Ben More.

Its many miles of coastline boast fantastic sandy beaches - particularly at Calgary and Ardalanish - whilst off-shore is one of Europe's prime habitats for whales and dolphins: Take a boat trip and spot minke whales, bottlenose dolphins, and maybe seals and harbour porpoise.

Meanwhile, lively Tobermory - known to millions of children as Balamory - has a bustling vitality and is a great place for a weekend break. Brightly painted houses provide a colourful backdrop to the picture-postcard harbour and the 'craic' in waterfront bars rivals anything on the mainland.

A world away from all this, but in reality just a short ferry ride across the sound, Iona is a tiny island and a deeply spiritual place which has drawn travellers to its enigmatic shores for more than a thousand years. The brilliant blue-green waters and clear light here have inspired poets, painters and pilgrims for centuries.
