Things to do and local events on Mull

Things to do

Mull has the most amazing wildlife and scenery and attracts visitors from all over the world. There are two castles, Torosay and Duart, both within walking distance of the Inn. There is also the historic island of Iona off the tip of the Ross of Mull, Fingal's cave on Staffa, Tobermory with its brightly coloured waterfront buildings and distillery and quaint towns of Dervaig and Bunessan.

The Isle of Mull has great outdoor activities to offer and we are sure you will find something that you like or want to try your hand at. There are plenty of hikes, ranging from just an hour or so to full day adventures. Mull is brilliant for cycling, playing golf, bird-watching, whale-spotting, fishing or seeing and experiencing the numerous events that take place on the island throughout the year.
