Magnificent Island of Mull cruise

An unforgettable island of Mull cruise aboard Splendour. Our new 6-night cruise itinerary offers stunning scenery, amazing wildlife spotting opportunities and fresh local produce.

Day 1

Board Splendour at the North Pier Pontoons, Oban at 16:00hrs for a warm welcome and a glass of bubbly. After Skipper’s welcome and safety briefing we slip the mooring lines and head for Loch Spelve on Mull.

Day 2

After a hearty breakfast, we weigh anchor and head north for a visit to Duart Castle home of the MacLeans of Mull since 1250. Enjoy lunch cruising the scenic Sound Of Mull to the secluded anchorage of Loch Na Droma Buidhe in Morvern. A walk on shore followed by a delicious dinner is the perfect end to the day.

Day 3

The bustling and colourful village of Tobermory beckons with its many interesting shops and attractions. Lunch aboard then we’re off out West stopping at Bloody Bay on the way to view the nesting white-tailed sea eagles. If the weather is settled we overnight at Lunga, one of the Treshnish islands and have 1000’s of guillemots and the ever-popular puffin colony to marvel at. There is nothing quite like a spot of puffin therapy before dinner, although puffins can only usually be seen up until late July.

Day 4

Staffa is famous for Fingal’s cave. Today we will anchor at Staffa and enjoy an unforgettable tender trip into this iconic cave. Lunch in the Sound of Iona with it’s Abbey and white shell beaches to explore. Magnificent!

Day 5

Cruise around the magical towering cliffs of the Ardmeanach peninsula, looking for sea eagles, to Ulva harbour. A good walk across Ulva to neighbouring Gometra can be enjoyed today or stay aboard with the crew as we move Splendour to Gometra Harbour to await the walkers in one of the most beautiful anchorages in Mull.

Day 6

North to Calgary Bay with a walk ashore to the cleared village Crackaig with its streets of black houses, or a stroll on the best sandy beach on Mull. Lunch is enjoyed on the move as Splendour cruises round Caliach Point, Ardmore Point and the Sound Of Mull to beautiful Loch Aline for a walk to Ardtornish House Gardens and overnight anchorage.

Day 7

Return to Oban with cameras and memories bursting at the seams with stunning images of this most visually beautiful part of Scotland. As always fond farewells and ‘Haste-Ye-Backs’ on the dock.
