Our terms are simple. A deposit (equivalent to your first night; at the appropriate rate; or £95 for a single night stay) secures your booking. If you cancel we will re-advertise your date(s) and if successful offer a full refund; but please note that if you cancel within a week of the date of your arrival there is less likelihood of re-letting your date; we therefore advise you to purchase insurance.
Plenty to see.
The Isle of Mull has many attractions, not least its wildlife, but also fine scenery and places of historical and geological interest. So don't forget your camera!
The wildlife on Mull is excellent at any time of year. But with newly arrived migrants in late April, breeding in May and June then these are the prime times for bird watching. Late July into August are good for Basking Shark and whales. If it's an Otter or two you're after then any time is good!
How long for?
Remember that although Mull is a small island, to fully appreciate all that it has to offer, you will require a minimum three nights stay. A seven night stay will give you the best chance to see most things - and it's the most economic too!
Public transport (buses) is limited and expensive and only really operates on the main Tobermory to Fionnphort road via Salen and Craignure.
Several taxis operate on the island but they too are expensive.
We recommend that you bring your car or your bicycle or both!
The Oban to Craignure ferry requires pre-booking during the Summer months and we recommend that you do so at least two months in advance.
The alternative crossing from Lochaline to Fishnish cannot be booked; simply turn up and sail.
The ferry from Fionnphort to the Isle of Iona is foot passenger only. Leave your vehicle at the Columba Centre car park (free).
