The Isle of Mull, or just Mull, is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides. It is difficult to describe Mull's shape, so have a look at a map! The long peninsula stretching roughly west-south-west nearest the mainland coast south of Oban is the Ross of Mull and leads to Fionnphort, where the Iona ferry makes its short journey. The other road from Craignure goes roughly north-west to the island capital, Tobermory.
Mull is particularly well known for its wild life, otters, sea eagles and golden eagles being common sights. It is also one of the last resorts of the corncrake in the United Kingdom and hen harriers are more common here than in most places.
Lovers of beaches will find some superb offerings here; Calgary being the best known but with Archiavaig and Ardalanish (both south of Bunessan) being worthy rivals. There is much fine coastal scenery from Lochbuie to Carsaig Arches
Ferry links to Mull from the mainland include Oban to Craignure (about 45 minutes), Kilchoan to Tobermory (about 35 minutes) and Lochaline to Fishnish (about 15 minutes). There are ferry links from Fionnphort on Mull to the neighbouring island of Iona and from Oskamull to Ulva.
