The Isle of Mull
or simply Mull, is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland. The Aros peninsula to the north includes the main town of Tobermory, other settlements include Salen and Calgary. Mull has a long coastline with a mountainous core, the highest peak on the island being Ben More, which reaches 966 metres (3,170 ft). Various peninsulas, which are predominantly moorland, radiate from the centre. Mull boasts such historic buildings as Duart Castle and Torosay Castle, both open to the public from Easter to September. Ferry links to Mull from the mainland include Oban
to Craignure (approx. 45 minutes), Kilchoan to Tobermory and Lochaline to Fishnish (approx. 15 minutes, suspended in rough weather).
