The beautiful Isle of Mull is the most easily-accessible island from the famous west-coast town of Oban
Mull's rugged landscape, abundant wildlife and golden beaches make it a stunning Scottish holiday destination, easily accessed from the mainland with a fast and frequent ferry service.
It’s possible to drive around the island in a day, but the roads are mostly single-track, so progress can be slow. We're absolutely sure you’ll want to stop frequently to admire the views, so we recommend staying on the island for a night or two to make the most of everything this beautiful and diverse island has to offer.
To reach the Isle of Iona, head down to Fionnphort at the tip of the Ross of Mull (approx 1-1.5hrs’ drive from the ferry terminal at Craignure, depending on traffic) to catch a further 10-minute ferry across the turquoise waters of the Sound of Iona. There you'll be rewarded with white sandy beaches, sparkling seas, a lovely collection of independent art studios and craft shops, a glorious Abbey and plenty of impressive history to soak up. The peace of Iona is legendary - it's the perfect place to relax and escape.
The wild and windswept Treshnish Isles form an archipelago located to the west of the Isle of Mull. It's possible to take a boat tour out to the Treshnish Isles from either Mull or Iona, and we highly recommend this, especially in summer when the puffins are nesting.
