Things to Do
This area of the island has lots of offer. It is only a 15-20 minute drive to Tobermory, so you can make the most of the restaurants, shops and boat trips on offer there. There are some lovely beaches and sections of coastline to explore, including Calgary, Port na Ba and Langmull beaches, so those who want to make the most of the outdoors and wildlife will have lots to keep them busy.
The village of Dervaig one of Mull's most picturesque habitations, and has the oldest inn on the island (The Bellachroy, within walking distance), a good village shop and post office and a pretty church situated at the head of Loch Cuin and visible from Cnoc a Challtainn.
The west coast of the island is particularly pretty, with some points of interest along the way including a garden at Lip Na Cloiche, which is open to the public; and the island of Ulva - accessible via a 5 minute ferry crossing from Ulva Ferry. Here you will find The Boathouse restaurant and some excellent walking trails, flora and fauna. Boats also depart from this part of the island for trips to the Treshnish Islands and Staffa.
