Dress for the Gathering Week. This is largely a matter of choice but the weather on Mull is very variable. For all excursions warm clothing, flat shoes and a light weight waterproof are advisable. Please wear something tartan whenever you can such as tie, hat, scarf or kilt. Dress for the Ceilidh/concert is casual. The Dance is the occasion to wear all the best you have brought with you and the Gathering is a tartan occasion.
