Salen

Towns & Villages

    Salen is a small village situated at the narrowest point on the east coast of Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides.

    Located halfway between Craignure and Tobermory, its central location makes the village an ideal base for exploring the island.

    On the north curve of Salen Bay stand the ruins of the 13th century Aros Castle built by the Lords of the Isles and later held by Maclean of Duart, while at nearby Gruline, the MacQuarie Museum marks the last resting place of Lachlan MacQuarie, Governor of New South Wales in 1809 and generally regarded as the ‘Father of Australia’.
