Guidebook describing over 40 walking routes on Scotland's beautiful Isle of Mull, as well as neighbouring Ulva, Gometra, Iona and Erraid. Walks range from 2 to 16 miles and from short circuits to demanding mountain traverses, but without technical difficulties. The Isle of Mull is wild, rugged and great for wildlife spotting.
- walking possible throughout the year, although the winter months call for winter mountaineering skills and equipment on the higher mountains
- Tobermory; smaller settlements at Dervaig, Salen, the ferryport Craignure, Bunessan and Ffionphort, the ferry point for Iona; accommodation plentiful, but camp sites and budget hostels few and far between
- few technical difficulties; walks cross rough, trackless terrain requiring walkers to be properly equipped and able to use map and compass
- Must See
- Mull's only Munro, Ben More, and a fine cast of lower heights; great glens for linear walks as good as anything on mainland Scotland; spectacular coastline; wildlife
A comprehensive walking guide to the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. Mull is easily accessible from Oban on the west coast of Scotland. The 47 routes described in this book range all over Mull and also onto Ulva, Gometra, Iona and Erraid, and walks range from 3 to 26km (2 to 16 miles) long and from short circuits to demanding mountain traverses, but without posing any technical difficulties. The landscape is wild and rugged and outstanding for observing wildlife – deer are commonplace, golden and sea eagles grace the air, otters frolic at the water's edge, dolphins and harbour porpoise slip effortlessly by. This guide is also full of information about all the islands' history and their much-studied and endlessly fascinating geology and will appeal to those who know the Mull well as much as those who are discovering it for the first time. All routes are described step by step and illustrated with the latest OS mapping.
