The Isle of Mull is a chocolate box of delights for the traveller who enjoys, walking, culture and a different lifestyle for a holiday. Back Brae Lodge situated in Tobermory provided a very welcome break in luxurious surroundings. I do not own a TV, dish washer, or have the opportunity to be so close to facilities such as a Coop,...

Thanks so much Wendy - you're very welcome back any time of course!

About the neighbourhood
Much of Mull's population lives in Tobermory, the home to a single malt Scotch whisky distillery, where you can smell the fumes wafting across the Bay. You probably won't bump into anyone from Balamory here, as it was a fictional place created for childrens' television. The coloured houses are real though.
Getting around
If you've brought your car, have a drive around the island and stop at your leisure at any places of interest. There is a bus service between the main island villages of Dervaig, Salen, Craignure and Fionnphort (the ferry terminal for Iona). Taxis and car hire are also available. Try to plan in advance as travel services can get busy in the peak season.
Car not needed
How to get there
There are three Caledonian MacBrayne car ferry routes to the island:

* from Oban (mainland Argyll) to Craignure on Mull
* from Lochaline (mainland Morvern) to Fishnish on Mull
* from Kilchoan (mainland Ardnamurchan) to Tobermory on Mull
