Rub shoulders with one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland when you stay in The Distillery Rooms and The Whisky Rooms, which counts the home of Tobermory whisky, and more recently gin too, as its neighbour. The colourful harbourfront lies to the other side of the apartment, where a treasure trove of cafes, artisan shops and seafood emporiums await, all hugged by the calm waters of the harbour, which is regularly visited by pleasure boats, local fishermen and yachts.

Things to Do
Stay in the heart of the island’s buzzing harbour town when you check into The Distillery Rooms. Located in prime position on the corner of Tobermory’s main street, there are a wealth of attractions to tempt you.
The outstanding distillery just next door makes an excellent first port of call, where you can go behind the scenes of the whisky making process, enjoy a tour of the stills and even peek inside the cask room before savouring a tipple or two.
Make the short walk across to the pontoons to embark on a range of boat trips to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles or even a whale watching excursion. Or, if you prefer, you can encounter Mull’s marine life on terra firma in the catch-and-release aquarium next door.
You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to gastronomic treats and could even indulge in dinner at a different restaurant every day of the week! Café Fish, Hebridean Lodge and the Mishdish all come highly recommended, with An Tobar, Tobermory Chocolate and Isle of Mull Ice Cream all excellent places to pause for coffee and a (not always!) light bite during the day. A walk along the coast to the lighthouse, or in the other direction to the waterfalls of Aros Park, justify the well-earned treat!
Leaving the lights of Tobermory behind, it’s easy to explore the island’s wilder side. Cruise west past lochs, hills and glens and you’ll soon reach the remote and dramatic scenery of the island’s west coast. Begin with a walk on Calgary Beach before meandering along the shore of Loch Tuath, perhaps with a quick hop across to the Isle of Ulva for a locally caught lunch at the Boathouse.
The stunning turquoise waters of Loch na Keal, dotted with offshore islands, wait further south, where you could share the experience with eagles, otters and more. Isle of Mull Pony Trekking at Killiechronan promises a picture-perfect canter through the waves on Highland ponies – an exhilarating way to experience the landscapes and leave the car behind.
