Mull has a great variety of scenery, mountainous of volcanic origin, with a 300 mile rocky coastline and sandy beaches.
The complex and interesting geology consists mainly of tertiary volcanic lavas overlying earlier sedimentary rock formations.
There are 2 nine hole golf courses, wildlife and other interest tours and pony trekking. There are opportunities for loch, river and sea fishing.
Boat trips go to Staffa, famous for Fingals cave and basalt columns, and the Treshnish Isles, a magical place in early summer when puffins are everywhere and other seabirds also breed and there are seals (both varieties) and maybe dolphins and whales can be found.
There are many spectacular walks and lots of space for hill or coastal walking ... or simply doing nothing!
