The Isle of Mull is perhaps best known for its successful adoption by white-tailed eagles after their reintroduction to Scotland. One of the largest Scottish islands, Mull, along with the surrounding waters and islands are an exceptional haven for wildlife, often able to be seen at close quarters.
It is also one of the most accessible Hebridean islands with the ferry journey from Oban taking just 50 minutes and a further two ferry options on offer from Tobermory and Fishnish. The Sound of Mull and the coastline of Morvern protect the eastern coastline of Mull from the worst of the maritime weather conditions. The western coastline is more affected by strong winds, but is also very diverse and beautiful. The large sea lochs of Loch na Keal and Loch Scridain encroach deep into the island while dotted off shore are the wildlife havens and fascinating small islands of Gometra, Ulva, Staffa, the Treshnish Isles and Iona. Inland, Mull has a diverse landscape of lochs, rivers and forests with the Ben More mountain range dominating the interior.
