Lying just off the west coast of Scotland, marvellous Mull and irresistible Iona are home to pristine beaches, unspoiled landscapes, a rich history and an abundance of wildlife. Look out for red deer roaming the hills, eagles gracing the skies above towering mountains and little bays and inlets that are home to otters and seals. Aside from the stunning flora and fauna, you’ll find evidence of prehistoric civilisations with standing stones, ancient Duart Castle and perhaps most notably, sixth century Iona Abbey, birthplace of Celtic Christianity.
Today we enjoy a scenic drive around the breathtakingly beautiful coast of Mull to visit the eighteenth century fishing port of Tobermory with its distinctive row of brightly painted buildings along the main street to the pier.
South Mull & Iona
Today we explore the lavish scenery on the southern side of the island. As foot passengers on the local ferry we cross the mile wide stretch of water known as the “Sound of Iona” to the adjacent island of Iona, famous for its connections to early Christianity.
Our comfortable hotel offers panoramic sea views, extensive spa facilities and a restaurant serving fine traditional fare.
