Mull. A fairly near neighbour, famous for the town of Tobermory with its brightly painted facades and travelling cat. Tobermory is a lovely little place which has a life beyond the tourist trade, though tourists are important.
A ferry can take you from there, across the water to Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula and then onwards to the most westerly point on the Scottish (and British) mainland.
Away from Tobermory there’s lots more of Mull to explore. Castles, beautiful beaches, more ferries, and smaller islands to explore; one the holy island of Iona.
We go for day trips and longer stays. We spent our tenth wedding anniversary there. DogStarke loves it too. And what better recommendation can you get?
