Isle of Mull megathread


#1

Things to do on the Isle of Mull innit. With v small kids. Probably gonna go to the beach one day, maybe go whale watching, staying in a room above a pub. Might go and look at a hydro scheme.
Been there? Go on.


#2

Not been, but when I go I’m gonna go to Iona. Kids love ancient monasteries, right?


#3

I’ve spent a bit of time on Iona working so should spare the kids that really.


#4

think i’ve been there when I was 4 or something
bought a small rock with a harp painted on it. endless fun


#5

Cycled round it about 25 years ago.
Tobermory is nice and colourful.

Lots of whisky distilleries. Kids love whisky distilleries.


#6

Went a couple of years ago, weather was fairly miserable. Tobermory was nice. Drove around the island, went to the beach and walked along the rocks, found a dead sheep. 8/10 day.
