Isle of Mull
A short ferry journey from the mainland, The Isle of Mull is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you’re a nature lover. Not only is it one of the best places to see birds of prey in the UK, but there are ample opportunities to view marine life all around the island including whales, seals, dolphins and more amidst some gorgeous hillscapes which walkers will enjoy. Tobermory, capital of Mull, is one of the prettiest ports in Scotland, thanks to the colourful houses and a sheltered bay. It is also the setting for the UK kids show Balamory. Mull is also a great base for taking a boat trip over to explore the islands of Iona, Coll and Tiree.
