Isle of Mull ReportsCounty Review by Sharon on March 13th, 2009
Mull is a beautiful Island which is part of Inner Hebrides, its situated just off the west coast of Scotland, the 4th largest of the Scottish Islands, and is home to just over two and a half thousand people. It is blessed with stunning scenery along three hundred miles of spectacular coastline, gorse covered hills and peaks punctuate the skyline, the highest of which is Ben More rising three thousand feet. The Island was first settled in the Bronze Age, and close inspection will uncover remnants of Burial Mounds and other gems that span the ages. The Island is fifty miles north to south, and has small villages and towns throughout, the largest of which is Tobermory, where colour washed houses line the harbour. Visitors can enjoy one of the many boat trips on offer, or visit the neighbouring isles, or there is always the picturesque, unspoilt beaches to explore, where unforgettable wildlife and rare Sea Eagles, Otters, Dolphins and Whales are often glimpsed. The rugged wild beauty is all around and is admired by walkers, fishermen, holiday makers and locals alike. There are shops, cottages, and colourful houses which ensures any visit to this Hebredean Island is an unforgettable one. County Review by Marian Bailey on May 16th, 2007
Isle of Mull is a special place to me and my family. We have been to Mull at least five times and my four sons have each taken their wives, partners and children there. What can we say both my husband and I love it. I originally come from Lanarkshire and moved to Essex when I was fourteen years old. What do I love about Mull it has every thing that I love about my place of birth in one small island. The sea, the lochs, the mountains and the breath taking views. The wildlife and the pleasure that my boys and husband have had when we have have spotted a sea eagle, seals or deers. Its a place of single lane (apart from a small stretch of two way leading into Tobermory. We have noted the influx of day passengers as a result of Balamory but note that the locals want people to remember that this is Tobermory. We have gone to Iona, spent a fantastic day on the Isle of Ulva and remember vividly the guy who took us across on a little boat with a motor engine. We were delayed going across we have not flipped down the board that said we needed to cross. The telephone box on the other side with the plant in it. Special for us all was the day that we went passed Salen up towards the waterfall, fantastic views. My sons and their partners swam in the waterfall pool about midway whilst my husband and I stayed with out grand daughter. Another special place in my sons and his fiance's heart is Aros Mains. Fantastic! Duart Castle breath taking. Calgery beach beautiful white sand. What can I say I get a longing to return and needless to say before I have finished this review I shall be wanted to book another return trip to Mull. Go its a place you will never forget!!!

Many years ago I spent a magical time on the Isle. My husband was a keen fisherman and of course was in paradise. The people were so lovely, friendly, but not pushy and the food in the shops was a delight. We had a small cottage where we self catered, unfortunately cannot remember name. Whilst we were there we bought some delightful little seals, made from real sealskin. Unfortunately my naughty labrador puppie has chewed them and we are so upset. Do you have an address that we could either write to or telephone to get a replacement.

Review of Tobermory by Mrs N Clarke on November 22nd, 2009
I have travelled the world but my favourite place is the Island of Mull. I have stayed in various hotels, B&Bs but the last two visits have been to Dunara Cottage in the grounds of Glengorm Castle.Absolutely superb.
