Catching the first ferry of the day out of Oban, we headed to Mull. We had planned for two nights and booked The Sheilings Campsite right next to the ferry terminal, as we couldn’t check in until later we set off on a magical tour of the south of the island.
Most of Mull’s roads are single track, but with passing places a plenty. If you see one of the coaches in your mirror, it’s best to pull over and let them pass, they’re not hanging around!
Sea otters, highland cattle, hawks and deer, but the sea eagles remained illusive for the two days. We ran up north and called in to Tobermory (What’s the story Balamory), and can recommend the ‘Mishnish’ pub for good beer including their own brew and ‘Cafe Fish’ for the seafood platter which has to seen to be believed.
All in all, we loved Mull, the views and the beaches were incredible and such a relaxed place.
Next stop Fort William.
