In light of COVID-19, everyone's health and safety is the most important thing. This means despite the love and desire to share our friendly, passionate and unique country, we must ask everyone at this time not to travel to our islands and remote rural communities.
Bringing the virus to these fragile and less accessible places puts unnecessary pressure on essential services and health services for local residents.
Ferry travel will only be available for those who permanently live on the islands and who have an essential need to travel to and from the mainland for essential supplies or business.
Let's put it to you straight; there really is no need to 'mull over' the decision on whether you should visit the Isle of Mull. This large Inner Hebridean island is full of many incredible possibilities, whether you are going for a day trip or staying a fortnight. Visit the charming town of Tobermory with its coloured houses and independent businesses and explore miles of stunning coastline with amazing wildlife. No matter what the Isle of Mull weather is like, you can experience the perfect island escape.
To the west of Mull, there are some exciting discoveries to be made. The tiny, enchanting Isle of Iona is a peaceful haven, while you can discover one of Scotland's geological wonders on a boat trip to Staffa. Mull is an ideal place to spot sealife, and in the summer months, you might even get up close to a puffin or two, or behold the incredible sight of thousands of breeding seabirds on the nearby Treshnish Isles. Looking for a longer break? With just half a day’s journey by sail and rail between them, it’s easy to combine Mull’s incredible landscapes and local food with Glasgow’s amazing cultural scene.
