Sound of Mull

Who cannot fail to be charmed by the Sound of Mull? Cuckoos in the spring, CalMac ferries steaming up and down, snow on the hills in the early autumn, views of Ben More, and the prospect of Ardnamurchan point and the open sea as you turn the corner off Tobermory. And despite some fairly impressive squalls it is a safe place to be, even when the weather is bad elsewhere, with hurricane holes like Loch Aline and Tobermory, in the dark if necessary. And there is always Loch Sunart as another place to escape bad weather. Mull has a lot going for it notwithstanding the increasing number of second homes. The tourist industry is booming with a lot of emphasis on wild life. The population is slightly under 3000.

The Sound of Mull on a threatening sort of a day

"What more delightful cruising ground can there be than these waters? Old ruined castles, Ardtornish of the Lords of the Isles, Duart with its grim tragic stories, Aros, Conn, and Mingary; lovely Loch Aline, and Loch Sunart winding far amongst the mountains can be explored..." CC Lynam  1907 

During the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 the islanders put together a charming film which gives an excellent idea of what Mull and its people are like.
