Useful Information

Here at Brockville we are happy to give you advice on the many pursuits on the Isle of Mull. We are sure there is something for almost everyone, and here are some of the things you might enjoy during your stay.

Walking

In and around Tobermory there are walks of varying degrees of length, few of them difficult, taking in sights of rugged shore lines and waterfalls, woodlands with ancient standing stones and ruined villages. Leave your car at Brockville and we will help suggest walks to suit your abilities, provide maps to help and a hot flask to keep you going.

Further afield there are outstanding walks revealing secluded beaches, towering peaks such as Ben More (one of the few Munros that takes you from sea level to over 3000ft) , or the less arduous but very rewarding S'Airde Beinn. Take in breathtaking scenery and encounter wildlife. Walk through lonely glens and imagine the history of this once populous island.

For those who wish to experience the hidden delights of Mull's wildlife, as well as its iconic eagles and otters, a walk with Mull Magic is a must. We can arrange a day out with Mull Magic who offer an expert, unique and fun-filled commentary on the flora and fauna you’ll encounter on their guided walks. To keep your energy levels up for all this, they will provide you with their renowned lunch, packed with locally sourced ingredients, like Isle of Mull cheese and Tobermory Smoked Salmon. Mouthwatering and delicious! For more information please see their website www.mullmagic.com or Tel: 01688 301213.

Cycling

Our many off-road and forest tracks make cycling a popular way to explore the island. You can hire bikes from Browns of Tobermory (01688 302020) , On Yer Bike, Salen (01680 300501) or the Ferry Shop on Iona (01681 700470). We also have helpful advice on www.isleofmullcyclingclub.co.uk

Photography

You will find myriad possibilities for creating your holiday memories, but if you wish to benefit from expert local knowledge, we can recommend Dr Sam Jones at Islandscape Photography. Sam, a professional photographer, holds regular workshops and guides tours where she shares her passion for photography, as well as finding you those off-the-beaten-track locations to enjoy and snap.

Golf

Mull boasts two golf courses. Tobermory Golf Club sits on the clifftops high above the town, and offers unrivalled 360° views over the bay and the Sound of Mull both towards the mainland and inland towards Beinn Talla and Spennie Beag . Just 400 metres from our door. Check it on www.tobermorygolfclub.com

Situated near the Craignure ferry terminal, Craignure Golf Club offers a very different challenge. On the shore by the Sound of Mull, you can almost wave to the yachts and ferries as they pass. www.craignuregolfclub.co.uk

Fishing

Mull is the second largest of the Inner Hebrides with a coastline over 300 miles long, so it offers excellent river, loch and sea fishing. To enquire about permits and for further information contact Tackle and Books, Main Street, Tobermory (01688 302336).

Wildlife Tours

From Tobermory there are many options for trips and tours. Some explore the sea and sea lochs around Mull where there are frequent sightings of whales and dolphins, Harbour Porpoises and Basking Sharks, seals and many species of birds. Others take you on land to view White tailed Eagles, Golden eagles, Hen Harriers and countless other birds, as well as otters, deer, and the occasional mink or pine marten. There are also trips and tours from other areas of Mull and all can be found on the link here. Also have a look at the Holiday Mull website
