Top Attractions in Isle of Mull
What travellers are saying
- Truly a must do if you can.
We loved seeing the puffins!
We only wish we had more time on the island to relax before our boat was leaving. We had ferried from Oban and took a bus in Mull to connect with a boat in order to see Staffa.
Do not attempt if the weather is bad/rough seas as the boat will not be able to land.Written 23 June 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- It is the most beautiful beach on the island and shallow enough for kids, adults and anyone really. Water was not warm on entry but after 5 mins its not that cold, Hard to believe you are not on the tropics when the sun is out and so clear you can see fish scurrying away when you walk in.Written 13 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Alex was very knowledgeable and he made the whole experience funny and interesting. A must if you visit Tobermory and like whisky or gin or even if you don’t.Written 14 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- What a spot ! views surrounding the castle are stunning and history fascinating ! Lunch in the tearoom was great, lots of gluten free options and not too expensive. Even met Lord Maclean who was very charming and just wandering about talking to visitors, 1st for me !Written 13 August 2022
- This outing involves a short walk at Craignure Golf Course. We met the Warden whose name I did not catch. She was a mine of relevant information and her conversational engaging style was excellent. Her powerful telescope was appreciated by the group
We saw an Otter at very close quarters, an adult and a juvenile sea eagle.
Allow about two and half hours for this. At £10 a head, it is probably the best bargain to be had on the Isle of Mull.Written 11 September 2019
- First visit and attempt of Ben Mor Mull. Good weather at the foot alongside Lock na Keal, which is beautiful. Got to around 2,000 feet of the 3,100 of Ben Mor and the weather, low cloud, reduced visibility. Continued to 2,500 feet but no further and returned to the base. Beautiful part of the country. Will return for a further attempt.Written 25 June 2022
- Really beautiful sets of waterfalls. For summer visit being a bathing suit and towel. For swim hole go carefully down. Photographer? Bring a tripod if possible. For most photogenic place go to first area just above the bridge and below the bridge. Some parking just south at bridge level. Some parking just north up a small hill(on west side).Written 15 July 2022
- Absolutely gorgeous area of unspoilt woodland and a lake. Quite challenging walking in places but definitely worth it.Written 14 August 2022
- We had a lovely crossing both ways when we went to Mull. The boat was clean and tidy and staff helpful and efficient.Written 14 August 2022
- Even 5 minutes in here is superb to get a flavour of the island from geology to wartime to the present day. Excellent staff and free to visit. Often open until after 3pm.
Would be good to have something around Balamory and Film locations like Duart to entice the teens. Current personalities who have been in town all their life. Bio of current residents maybe.
Highly recommend a visit and to donate to maintain such a valuable treasure run by volunteers.

- I spent all my childhood holidays here so this was quite an emotional trip back! The sun wasn’t shining but it didn’t detract from the beauty. So pleased to be able to introduce my husband and dog to this little piece of heaven!Written 24 September 2021
- Had noted the reviews if this secluded, remote and amazing beach plus a resident friend had recommended it to.
We parked at the trail head, just outside the woodland community gates and set off - it's about 1.5miles each way and an easy walk too, mostly over shale covered tracks.
The beach is exquisitely white and perfect for paddling etc or admiring, plenty of bird life too if you're a twitcher or photographer.
We spent a few hours admiring the vistas and didn't see a human sole there or on the to/from walk.
Highly recommendedWritten 10 June 2022
- Really nice walk, easy to follow guides online, just a shame it's back the same way and not a loop! The landslide isn't an issue, it has a pretty clear path through it that people have made and it's only 20m long. If we hadnt read about the landslide we wouldnt have thought twice about that part it just seems part of the pathWritten 3 July 2021
- The staff were friendly and enthusiastic with visitors and our toddler loved the touch pool where you can handle a selection of sea life. The aquarium itself is small and maybe has a wee bit too much on display for the available space, it was very busy and a little shambolic having to squeeze past people and kids running everywhere. That said it was an enjoyable way to kill some time on a rainy day and definitely worth a visit. Pre book your visit if you don’t want to risk having to wait when you turn up.Written 2 August 2022
- We purely came here to swim in the sea between Erraid and Mull. The walk to get here from Knockvologan takes about 10 minutes, be careful in bad weather as the path immediate from the farm is rocky and steep, however in regular weather it's perfectly fine.
I was really confused about getting here and the first time I tried a few weeks back, I went completely the wrong way. If you get to the bottom of the path from the farm and you go right, stick to the grass, walk along the grass and you can't miss it, the first beach you get to is the pass between Mull and Erraid. I have been told that even when the tide comes in, you'll still be able to walk across, just wear wellies (or I suppose go barefoot!)
When we arrived there was a family of 4 but they left almost as soon as we got there, so we had about 3 hours just the two of us, it was amazing. On a boiling, roasting, sunny Sunday in the summer holidays, I thought it would be busy but I was wrong. Made for a really special lunch out.Written 5 July 2021
