Isle of Mull and Iona
Mull is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides (after Skye) on the west coast of Scotland with numerous smaller islands off the west of Mull, including Erraid, Inch Kenneth, Iona, Gometra, and Ulva. Smaller uninhabited islands include Eorsa, Little Colonsay, the Treshnish Isles and Staffa (of Fingal's Cave fame). Mull is well known as a destination for photographing wildlife, however the landscapes are a worthy subject in their own right with a seemingly endless coastline hiding wild unspoilt beaches and coves. The geology of pink granite in the Ross of Mull is particularly interesting. Much of Mull remains inaccessible by road with a surprisingly mountainous area and feels remote. Iona remains the jewel of the Hebrides, verdant green with beautiful white beaches, azure blue water and seaweed hung skerries.
