Scotland: Mull, Staffa and Iona

From:£1,495

Summary

Lying off the west coast of Scotland, the Isle of Mull is a place of tumbling burns, high peaks, dramatic views and a silent, lonely beauty. From our base at the comfortable Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, conveniently located close to the ferry terminal with superb views of the Sound of Mull, the Morvern hills and the Firth of Lorne, we will explore some of the highlights of the island. The multi-coloured buildings that line the waterfront of the island’s principal town, Tobermory, will be familiar to many. From here we sail on a wildlife cruise that takes us to the Treshnish Isles, home to thousands of seabirds including puffins, and the little island of Staffa, whose natural cathedral of basalt columns is one of the wonders of the west coast. Duart Castle, the 13th century home of the Chief of Clan MacLean, sits broodingly on its headland, seemingly unmoved by the stunning views across the Firth of Lorne to Ben Cruachan. Lying just off the Ross of Mull, the sacred isle of Iona is famous the world over for its peaceful Abbey, a place of calm and contemplation, the perfect antidote to the stress of modern life.
