The Isle of Mull is the second largest of the Inner Hebrides and is made up of peninsulas jutting out from a central point creating a coastline of over 300 miles. To the west of Mull lie a number of small islands including Iona, Gometra and Ulva, the Treshnish Isles and Staffa, all of which make this a fascinating cruising area. The smaller uninhabited islands of Staffa and the Treshnish Isles provide a haven for breeding sea birds. The puffin colonies are a particular attraction in spring and early summer. The mainland of Mull, dominated by Ben More, is a haven for wildlife. The moorlands are home to deer and wild goats. White-tailed sea eagles can be seen circling overhead and otters may be spotted on the shore. The main town on the island is the brightly-painted Tobermory, which overlooks Tobermory Bay. It is a popular anchorage and an opportunity to see and purchase some of the islands’ diverse produce.
