Your guide to Isle of Mull
Beauty doesn’t get wilder than the Isle of Mull. This Inner Hebridean island off the west coast of Scotland has everything: spectacularly rugged coastline, silver-sand beaches, glittering lochs, waterfalls, and even an extinct volcano. Wildlife abounds, from the eagles overhead to the dolphins and whales offshore and the otters lazing near rock pools; the uninhabited but accessible islands of Staffa and the Treshnish Isles are havens for seabirds like guillemots and puffins. Mull’s scenery is enhanced by picturesque villages — from Craignure and Bunessan to the candy-colored main town of Tobermory — and ruins dating to the Stone Age, and the 13th-century Duart Castle.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Isle of Mull?
Island weather can be especially unpredictable, so you need to go out each day prepared for anything from sunshine to a raging storm. Temperatures in the summer months of June, July, and August average around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and drop to 40 degrees from December through February. It can rain up to 23 days in the month, and it’s always a bit windy, so make sure you have warm clothing and waterproof layers whatever time of year you book one of the area’s cottages. Be prepared, too, for midges between June and September; they’re particularly bad in damp, warm weather, so you should definitely pack repellent, and it might be worth investing in some net protection for your face if you find them particularly bothersome.
What are the top things to do in Isle of Mull?
The extinct volcano that dominates the center of Mull is a Munro — the Scottish term for a mountain over 3,000 feet — and the only one to be found on any island besides Skye. It’s a strenuous five-to-six-hour climb to the top, but you need only get halfway up to enjoy its incredible views.
