An t-Eilean Muileach, an t-eilean aghmhor,                         The Isle of Mull is of isles the fairest,

An t-eilean grianach mun iath an saile                                 Of ocean’s gems ‘tis the first and rarest;

Eilean buadhmhor nam fuarbheann arda                            Green grassy island of sparkling fountains,

Nan coilltean uaine, ‘s nan cluaintean fasail.                       Of waving woods and high tow’ring mountains.

 

Why not come and see for yourself? No we’re not making it up! This is as true today as it was 150 years ago when the original Gaelic version of this popular Mull song was written by Dugald MacPhail, one of the island’s most celebrated bards.

Mull has an amazing variety of landscapes, geological formations, even climates, for a fairly small island - having said that, it’s bigger than you probably think!  For example from Tobermory in the North to Fionnphort in the South-West by road is a total of 64 miles (of mainly single track and often tortuous roads!) and the coastline measures a staggering 300 miles, which is more than that of Devon and Cornwall put together. 

In fact the meaning of “Mull” comes from the Gaelic word for a headland or peninsula and we assume the island gets its name because it is basically a series of headlands divided by sea-lochs which cut deep into the coastline. 

This huge coastline coupled with our relatively low population (about 3,000) means you can always find a quiet secluded beach. 

We believe Mull has the greatest density of Eagles per square mile in the whole of Scotland (Both golden eagles and sea eagles). It’s also a great place to see otters and other wildlife. 

Mull is rich in signs of its varied history: 

  • Stone circles

  • Standing stones

  • And man-made islands, all dating from the iron age:

  • Remains of duns (fortified hills) from early Christian times

  • Castles dating back to the 13th century

  • Deserted villages from the clearances in the 1800s - a time when the population of Mull was between 10,000 and 11,000.
