Tobermory and Mull are great places to stay and although the lodge is central, it's positioned between a terrace and a rock face so there are no views. Although well equipped it's looking definitely tired and could do with a clean up. E.G. a new...More

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.
