The Isle of Mull is situated just off the North-West coast of Scotland (see map to the lower right-side of this page) and is well-known as a 'Wild Isle', partly due to its great variety of habitat, from white sand beaches to mountains, and from moorland to woodland.

If you want a longer 'tour', and have your own transport, you can carry on round the west side of Mull, travelling along the side of Loch Tuath, past the waterfall of Eas Fors, and then around the side of Loch Na Keal where the vistas of sea and islands are utterly breathtaking. You can then finish the round trip by travelling, via Salen, back to Falls Lodges.
