Aros Park is an area of woodland managed by the Forestry Commission on the outskirts of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull.
The park is all that remains of the once extensive Aros estate, which was bought by the Forestry Commission in 1959. The woodland can be enjoyed throughout the year, with the contrasting colours particularly attractive during the autumn months.
Visitors can enjoy a picturesque walk which stretches from the Tobermory Bay coastline, through the park’s Main Drive and up to the Allain look-out tower. This route follows the banks of the Aros Burn and up to a stunning waterwall with amazing views across the Tobermory, the Sound of Mull and the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The colourful buildings of Tobermory act as a vibrant backdrop to the park.
