Things to Do
The Ross of Mull's rocky coastline is interspersed with some of Mull's best sandy bays, so visitors to the island often have a soft spot for this corner of the Isle, for the fantastic coastal scenery and rugged terrain. The south coast of the peninsula has dramatic cliffs at Carsaig; there are fossil beds and rugged coastline around Ardtun; and places like Kilvickeon; Ardalanish and Knockvologan beaches to explore on foot.
Guests paying a visit to this area can easily access the Isle of Iona, a beautiful island it its own right with many places of historical interest to visit. Also the archipelago known as the Treshnish Isles, and Staffa too, with its fantastic birdlife and stunning geological formations. Ardalanish Weavers, the Ross of Mull historical centre and the South West Mull Makers centre are all worth a visit too, and there is some great local seafood on offer at places like the Seafood bar in Fionnphort and Ninth Wave restaurant.
Further afield there is the Ardmeanach peninsula, central and north Mull to explore too. Set yourself the challenge of climbing Ben More, the island's highest mountain; visit the island capital of Tobermory, or plan a trip to Duart Castle, an imposing castle in the south east of the island with a tearoom and guided tours.
