From our base at Stonefold’s Farm in Aberdeenshire we set off for the island of Mull having been given advice from our hosts that it was an excellent place to visit.
Living in Australia, where distances are vast between places, it looks as though Mull is a long way from Aberdeen but it isn’t really. We decided to approach Mull from Lochaline rather than Oban.
We had been to Oban previously and thought we would go to Mull via a different route to see another part of the country.
The ferry trip from Lochaline was only a short ride but a beautiful one.
The ferry was small but the wait was short.
Our arrival on Mull was during lovely weather so we took the opportunity to make the most of it by travelling to Tobermory.
This was one distillery that we didn’t tour as it was out of visiting times when we were there.
Tobermory is picture perfect.We had arrived fairly late in the day and had not arranged any accommodation previously but stayed at a lovely hotel called Glenforsa which is built in a log cabin style with Norwegian wood and boasts its own helicopter pad on the shore, viewed from the dining room.
When we left Mull the weather was more your typical highland weather.
On our way to Mull we had passed Adverikie House.

What a lovely trip, it’s funny to think that you see Aberdeen as not being that far from Mull – to me it’s a long way! It’s years since I’ve been to Mull but your post makes me want to go back, it has everything, that island.
