Mull: Clan Maclean Homeland

 
Mull is the largest of the North Argyll islands and the second largest in the Hebrides, covering an area of 351 square miles, and has a native population of about 3,000.  The main town , Tobermory, lies in the North East of the island.  Main ferry routes are from Oban to Craignure, from Kilchoan to Tobermory, or from Lochaline to Fishnish.  The Isle of Mull is separated from the West coast mainland of Scotland by the Sound of Mull and the Firth (inlet) of Lorne.

Mull is a thriving community with many events being held such as the Mull Rally (October) and the Salen agricultural show (August). The island also has a vibrant arts scene, with a thriving traditional scene and popular music - such as the Mull Historical Society - leading the way as well as the An Tobar arts centre in Tobermory and Dervaig's Mull Theatre.
 
Other visitor attractions include Duart and Torosay castles, the Carsaig Arches, and McCulloch's fossil tree. Climbers and hillwalkers are drawn to the challenge of Ben More and wildlife enthusiasts come to study the island's growing population of Golden and White Tailed Sea Eagles.
