Isle of Mull

Let me tell you about the trip during which I completely fell in love with Scotland. It was the summer 2013 and I was really keen to do some travelling. I convinced a friend to join me (I didn’t even know her that well, but she agreed to share a tent with me for three days!), so we packed our house, pumped up the tires and few hours later we were in Isle of Mull. It was the second time when I was on a cycling&camping trip in Scotland, so I knew what to expect and I was really excited (maybe I’ll tell you about my first trip one day as well)!

We didn’t cycle around the entire island, only the upper bit (starting from Craignure going to Tobermory, Dervaig and then back through Salen). I don’t want to talk much about how amazing the weather and how beautiful the island were and how much I enjoyed the whole trip.I think I’ll just leave you with some photos and hopefully they will do a better job explaining my experiences, than trying to put everything into words 🙂

The first day: Craignure, Duart Castle, Salen and camping a bit before Tobermory

The second day: Tobermory, Calgary & a campsite somewhere around Acharonich

The last day: from Acharonich, through Salen to Craignure and back to Oban

I’m definitely going back! 🙂

  1. The most beautiful place it Scotland. My all time favourite. I’m heading there this week. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos.


    1. Totally agree! It’s absolutely stunning. I think people always say that Isle of Skye is a must do, but Mull is so much better! Any recommendations where to go next time I’m there? 🙂

      1. Ulva is not to be missed if you’ve not been. Tiny wee island off Mull. 2 minutes across on an little on demand ferry. It has a population of 7 and is remote and beautiful. It also has a fabulous restaurant called The Boathouse. 😍


  2. I went to Mull this summer and fell in love with it. Found the loveliest secluded beach traigh a mhill. If you ever go back, it’s about an hours soggy, hilly walk but definitely worth it.
