We can recommend a range of great days out from Druimnacroish — taking into account your interests, the weather and how adventurous you’re feeling.

things to do and see around mull

After a hearty breakfast, take an all–day walk around the Treshnish headland (low level) or climb Ben More from sea level (966m). There are a number of shorter walks and beaches to visit within easy reach. The island has a mix of designated paths and wild walking. Neil & Margriet are always available to advise . We can lend maps and books for the day and, in the unlikely (!) event of wet weather, will help dry out your boots when you get home.

Trips to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles run from Ulva Ferry; Fingals Cave and the nesting puffins are a great attraction in season. We've lost count of the guests who come back from a day on one of these trips saying "That was one of the best days of my life".

Our wildlife is a major attraction. These islands are sparsely populated and present a rare and unspoilt habitat. There is perhaps the highest density of eagles in Europe, but the other wildlife should not be underestimated including many fine raptors, waders and sea birds, whales, dolphins, common and grey seals, deer, otters and mountain hare. We can offer advice and experts run guided trips (see Links page for details).

The Isle of Ulva is well worth a day out, with good walking and excellent shellfish and home baking in the tearoom.

Make sure you take a full day to go to Iona, giving yourself enough time to see more than just the Abbey, and come back by the scenic route round the sea lochs on Mull's west coast National Scenic Area.

Bring your bike, a great way to get around on our slow, quiet roads and forest tracks. You can hire bikes and as of 2014 you can also hire electric bikes (to help with the hills!). Please ask for advice.

On that rare rainy day, visit Duart Castle or take a dip in the Swimming Pool and Spa at Craignure. The arts centre "An Tobar" in Tobermory and The Old Byre heritage centre near Dervaig are also well covered. You can also tour Sgriob Ruadh Farm (Isle of Mull Cheese) or Tobermory Distillery in any weather.
