A comprehensive walking guide to the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. Mull is easily accessible from Oban on the west coast of Scotland. The 47 routes described in this book range all over Mull and also onto Ulva, Gometra, Iona and Erraid, and walks range from 3 to 14 miles long and from short circuits to demanding mountain traverses, but without posing any technical difficulties. The landscape is wild and rugged and outstanding for observing wildlife - deer are commonplace, golden and sea eagles grace the air, otters frolic at the water's edge, dolphins and harbour porpoise slip effortlessly by. This guide is also full of information about all the islands' history and their much-studied and endlessly fascinating geology and will appeal to those who know the Mull well as much as those who are discovering it for the first time. All routes described step by step and illustrated with the latest OS mapping.
