Mull is a truly magical place. It has a dramatic coastline and a variety of scenery ranging from the high basaltic plateau of the north to the rounded granite hills of the Ross of Mull in the south-west. The Ross of Mull is unspoiled by roads. This makes it an ideal destination for bird watching and observing the unique Hebridean wildlife which roam free in their natural environment. Explore the many white sandy coves and beaches on the Ross and on Iona which are washed by the waters of the Gulf Stream. Visiting the neighbouring islands of Iona and Staffa will also be a highlight for your holiday. Iona is a sacred Isle steeped in Christianity and history. This famous Inner Hebridean island only 3 miles long by a mile and a half wide is accessible from a passenger ferry which runs between Fionnphort and Iona and takes approx 5 minutes. It possesses a unique atmosphere. Sanctuary from the bustle of life can be found at the famous abbey which is the ancient burial ground for forty-eight Scottish Kings. Staffa - (meaning Pillar Island) can be reached by a short boat trip. It is one of the natural geological wonders of the world. Fingal's Cave is the most spectacular feature and was made famous by Mendelssohn's Music. Boat trips are available from Mull and Iona during the summer season weather permitting. The Ross of Mull and adjacent offshore islands abound with interesting wildlife. Depending on the season corncrakes can be heard and sometimes seen on Iona. The long indented coastline is the ideal place to watch oyster catchers ringed plovers common sandpipers redshanks and curlews and the small flocks of whimbrel passing though on migration. Predatory birds including Sea Eagle Golden Eagle Hen Harrier Peregrine Merlin and Short Eared Owl can be observed at most times of the year. Wild greylag geese can be seen year round whilst in autumn and winter the rare Greenland white-fronted geese are present. The smaller off shore islands also boast an impressive array of wildlife. On Staffa puffins can be encountered at very close quarters whilst at Treshnish visitors will be stunned by the sheer number of breeding seabirds including guillemots razorbills puffins fulmars shags gulls and kittiwakes. Many visitors have been fortunate in recent years to have spectacular views of dolphins and porpoises with the occasional glimpse of a whale on their way to and from these islands. Seals are commonplace along the sheltered rocky coves of the Ross of Mull. Otters occupy every available stretch of coastline and by sitting patiently downwind you can be rewarded by extremely close views of these fine creatures. Red Deer are abundant throughout Mull and can be watched from numerous places including the road system. A holiday on Mull is ideal for nature lovers!
