WildlifeonMull is a guided tour with a difference. We are based in a designated area of outstanding national beauty that is Ulva Ferry, with its unrivalled views along Loch Na Keal, up loch Tuath and across Inch Kenneth to the Isle of Iona. Join our tour of the magical Isle of Mull, we will show you some of the spectacular scenery, while looking out for the majestic golden eagle, white-tailed sea eagle, hen harrier, red deer and otters and much more of what this beautiful island has to offer.
Mull Wildlife can be enjoy in all seasons.
The Isle of Mull sits off the West Coast of Scotland and is the second largest of the inner Hebridean islands.
Boasting approximately 300 miles of coastline from rugged Cliffs to both white and black sandy beaches. Also view the sea as spindrift is torn from the surface, spiralled up into the sky and carried away by the winds created by these gales which tear through the islands occasionally.
We also have a number of smaller islands on the western side of the Isle of Mull. From the famous Iona up to Staffa and on to Inch Kenneth and Aorsa. These islands have their own remarkable history while a few miles out off the west coast we have the Treshnish isles, owned by the National Trust and internationally famous for its birdlife.
There are also areas of broadleaf woodland protected for their rare ecosystems, and large areas of grass moorland covering much of the hillsides. Sea and Freshwater Lochs, and rivers with fantastic waterfalls just add to the variety of habitats and scenery.
The beauty of Mull can be enjoyed year-round with an ever-changing landscape, in spring and summer an abundance of wildflowers and nesting birds such as the Hen Harrier, Eagles and short-eared owl, whilst autumn brings us the sounds of rutting deer, autumnal colour and migrant birds.
With the winter months we experience spectacular sunsets and millions of stars on clear nights, the Aurora Borealis is known to light our evening skies. Elsewhere you see Eagles soaring along cliff edges looking for
We have secluded bays where Otters can be seen playing and fishing in the kelp with Common and Grey Seals basking on the rocks and small islands uncovered at low tide.
We will be on the look-out for Porpoise flitting through the waves as they hunt for food their fins glistening in the sunlight or Basking Sharks trawling for plankton close in shore.
Also, a chance to sight the Bottlenose Dolphin or a Minke Whale as you watch and wait and let the cares of the world gradually drift away taking in the timeless scenery and beauty that Mull has to offer.
Loose yourself as you watch a Grey Heron patiently waiting for a meal on the loch side or a family of ducks or geese drift on by as a Skylark, full of the joys, sings it’s wonderful song as it soars above your head or the distinctive call of the Oystercatcher noisily tries to see you off thinking you are too close to its nest.
All this is what a holiday or a day out on with Widlifonmull is all about, “What is life if full of care, I have no time to stand and stare“ (William Henry Davies, Poet
A holiday or a day out with WildlifeonMull lifts your cares away, leaves you renewed and ready to take on the world again….until your next holiday on The Magical Island Of Mull.
