Isle of Mull (Scotland) Reviews
Newest Review: ... ). If you are lucky, or prepared, you may even see dolphins and whales. There are days trips galore, when we are there we take the ferry over to Iona, which is just beautiful and only takes about 10 minutes to get to, you get the ferry from Fionnphort. The shop and ferry port are about the only things in Fionnphort but the shop is very reasonable and the people are friendly and helpful. Tobermory is a lovely little village, made famous of course by the children's program "Balamory", when we went however it was in January, and it was freezing! It's apparently lovely in summer, and you get the best fish and chips from a little... more

The Isle of Mull is a truly beautiful little island. At around 300 square miles and with a population of less than 3000 its very peaceful as well. From Fionnphort to Tobermory there is so much to see and do. The people are friendly, the scenery stunning and wildlife is everywhere. You can see Golden Eagles, if you are lucky, Highland Cows, Stags, sheep (are they wildlife? ). If you are lucky, or prepared, you may even see dolphins and whales.

I have been to the Isle of Mull a couple of times. Once when I was younger and the memories of Mull were great. I remember we stayed in Tobermory with all the colourful houses. Last year my sister decided that she was getting married on the Isle of Mull in Tobermory as she had fond memories that were from childhood as well as a family trip with her partner and child. To be honest I didn't know what to expect from going here as an adult as I was unable to remember too much about the place. Yes I did remember colourful houses and the big hill up to the cottage we were staying in. I also remembered the cottage itself but this time round we would be ... Read the complete review

Right now the place I am writing about is actually Tobamory which is a little village on the Isle of Mull, where the children's programme Balamory was/is filmed. I was staying in Scotland at the time with the family, and when we discovered the Isle of Mull was just a short ferry ride away, we decided to go and have a look, knowing it was the filming place of Balamory and having a young kid with us, we thought we'd take a trip there. Upon driving our car onto the ferry, we were taken the few miles to the Isle of Mull, it didn't take very long, and it wasn't alot of money (it was a few years ago now and I wasn't the one paying so I don't know the ...

The Isle of Mull is the second largest of the Inner Hebrides, off the West Coast of Scotland. Despite having an area of over 800 square miles, only about 2000 people live there, most in the capital Tobermory. During the summer, the population swells considerably due to tourists visiting the isle. Mull is a mountainous, rocky island, with its largest mountain, Ben More classed as a Monro (Scottish mountain over 3000 feet high). The rocky coastline and mountainous interior make Mull an island of stunning scenery. There seems to be a jaw-dropping view around almost every corner. It truly is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. If you're 'into' ... Read the complete review

It's a Scottish island so guess what happens here, it rains. Having woken up in Fort William in the rain, my friends and I caught a bus to Kilchoan and then a ferry to Tobermory. The bus journey was interesting as the bus driver drove down the narrow one lane wide roads, with cattle in the way, and delivered bread and milk to some of the people who lived there on the way to Kilchoan. The rain, however, did not stop. Once on Mull the trek to the campsite began. It wasn't far, about half an hour without heavy bags. Tobermory campsite (yes the only campsite in Tobermory, but there are also hotels and a youth hostel in town) is a couple of fields by a stream, ... Read the complete review
