Mull is the fourth largest island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. It is in the Argyll and Bute Council Area. Mull is a popular destination for tourists, and many people from Central Scotland have holiday homes here.
Mull is a ruggedly beautiful place. Accessible by ferry from Oban, Lochaline, or Kilchoan, there is plenty for visitors to see and do. Mull boasts attractive villages and mountains, and there are castles to visit for those wanting a more relaxing time.
The largest settlement on Mull is Tobermory, originally founded as a fishing station. It lies on the east coast towards the northern end of the island. It is a favourite tourist spot with its many coloured buildings.
