Isle of Mull, Scotland Reviews
A treat for scenic lovers May 16, 2011
The Isle of Mull is one largest island off the west coast of Scotland in the council area of Argyll and Bute.
A ferry ride from Oban to Craignure took 40 minutes. Ferry rides are quite frequent from Oban, earliest ferry times were around 7am from Oban to Craignure and last one from Craignure to Oban was 7pm. Timetables do vary so please check before planning you journey, information regarding timetables and tickets is available on website www.calmac.co.uk.
If I recall correctly ticket for each adult is £8.25. Isle of Mull is a very large island so if you can I would recommend taking your car with you to fully explore it. Taking the car with you on ferry cost you around £56 for return journey. There are good transport links in Isle of Mull with buses available for tourists to explore the isle, but car provides you the opportunity to travel and explore at your own pace, and pick and choose where you like to spend more time. If you enjoy driving on twisty roads and your car have a sport suspension, then it is a driving heaven for you!
Like i mentioned before, it is large isle so you need time to explore, if you are planning a day trip then best to take an early ferry ride to Craignure to have enough time for yourselves to fully enjoy and experience it.
Much of the population in the Isle lives in Tobermory. Tobermory sea front have coloured terraced houses.
Calgary beach is awesome, the amazing white shell sand beach make this one of the most photographed places on the Isle of Mull. I would definitely recommend anyone planning a trip to Mull to have calgary beach in their trip plans!
There is so much to explore in Isle of Mull, we only had 6 hours, and I pretty much kept driving and stopping frequently to take pictures or enjoy the breathtaking views.
In my next trip, i am planning to spend couple of days on the Isle and explore on foot more.
