The Isle of Mull is worth a visit of more than just a few days (let alone one day). There are some beautiful castles, like Duart Castle, the nice harbour town of Tobermory and stunning scenery. Lots of stunning scenery.

Mull consists of several peninsulas, with names like Mingish, Treshnish and Ardmeanach. The south-west, the Ross of Mull has its own portfolio.
All parts of the island can be reached by single track roads, often along the most spectacular cliffs. Around each bends, new horizons arise, new islands can be seen.

Much of this portfolio consists of sky. We had some spectacular weather during our stay (people who don't make photographs would say bad weather), with great light shows.
Maybe even better were the early mornings at Craignure. The clouds above Loch Linnhe and Lismore colouring pink, a single boat puffing its way towards Oban.

Mull is famous for its wildlife as well. Eagles, deer and otters can be seen for those who have the patience to sit and watch - or those with plain luck.
During the boat trip to Staffa and the Treshnish isles we happened to see two otters, both swimming a couple of 100 meters from the coast!
