Cicerone The Isle Of Mull
Walking on the Isle of Mull, off the west coast of Scotland. Includes routes on Ulva, Gometra, Iona and Erraid. Walks range from 3 to 14 miles long and from short circuits to demanding mountain traverses, but without technical difficulties. The Isle of Mull is wild, rugged and great for wildlife spotting.
Cicerone The Isle of Mull
The Isle of Mull is rugged, in many parts untamed and trackless, and everywhere it offers walkers of all abilities something special. That wildness also makes Mull, and its outlying islands, outstanding places to spot creatures such as eagles, otters, dolphins and porpoises.
Mull is an island you can visit at any time of the year, and the walking is just as agreeable in winter as in summer (as long as you are appropriately skilled and experienced in venturing into the high mountains in winter).
The routes in this guidebook range from 5 to 22km (3 to 14 miles) and from short circuits close to civilisation to truly remote and demanding mountain treks. The walks are widely varied, and provide something for everyone, embracing high mountains, lonely lochs, coastal cliffs, glens and forests.
- 47 walks right across Mull and also on Ulva, Gometra, Iona and Erraid
- illustrated step-by-step with colour OS mapping
- packed with information about the islands’ history and their much-studied and endlessly fascinating geology
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
