9 Photos to Convince You to Visit the Isle of Mull, Scotland

Looking for a quiet adventure? The Isle of Mull may just be the retreat for you.

The inner Hebrides on the west coast of Scotland are home to some of the most beautiful and secluded getaways in the UK. The islands are home to silver sand beaches, turquoise waters and if you time it right, the tranquillity of being the only person around for miles.

Stepping off the ferry from Oban and exploring the beaches you feel like you're stepping on truly untouched ground. The calm and simplicity of the island is remarkable. You can get away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist spots and head towards Fionnphort. A sleepy fishing village with a great campsite right on the waters edge. You can even catch a short ferry over to Iona, a small neighbouring island known famously for its natural beauty. 

Those looking for a little more adventure whilst visiting are in for a treat also. The island has plenty of brilliant Rock climbing, bouldering and deep water soloing. It's also home the only island Munro, Ben More. Which stands 996 metres tall and gives impressive views to the rest of the surrounding islands. Many people also choose to explore the island by bike and tickets are available to explore the rest of the islands if you wanted to make a trip out of it.

All in all the Isle of Mull is a truly magic place and i hope you find inspiration in these pictures to visit this very special part of the world.
