Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed and comprehensive guide. 10 Sept. 2013
By Mr Ben
Format:Kindle Edition
Having lived on Mull for a number of years and an avid fan of path finding my own routes via a os map, due to the fact there are few proper foot trails on Mull. I decided to opt for a guide to expand my knowledge, Terry Marsh has obviously explored and researched like a enthusiastic local because what I thought were my own private findings Terry has found. He even gets the terrain correct, which may sound strange but he guides you around or warns of heavy bog ground. I highly recommend this book, he finds hidden gems that only locals know about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 19 Feb. 2015
By Gannet
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Due to us going to Mull we thought it would be useful to have some guide as to places to go and some of the walks available, this appeared to fit the bill so placed an order.
The book arrived quite quickly and first thing I noticed was that the cover is covered in a plastic coating which is very good if using it outside it gives a level of protection, at least when it is closed.
The author describes the walks very well and gives a good idea as to what kind of walk it is, not tested any out yet until I go up there but was good for planning where we would like to go.
One thing I am not so keen on is that there are a number of linear routes that finish a fair distance from where the walk starts, so it is a case of backtrack to the start point where the car is and double the journey length or you have to get alternative transport from the other end.
Well written and appears to give good directions, very accurate grid reference as to the start point which is very good and also the distance.
I will be testing out some of these walks and hopefully the directions will be good enough to get us around without getting lost

5.0 out of 5 stars A very thorough guide for all abilities 23 Jun. 2013
By JRA
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A detailed description about the history, geology and wildlife of Mull as well as various other aspects. There are plenty of walks for the full range of walking abilities from short forest and glen walks to Mull's only Munro, Ben More. The descriptions of the walks are thorough and give good warnings of where the going gets tough. All the maps are taken from OS 1:50000 sheets and are easy to find on the full sheets or even to use alongside a GPS. It is a very useful guide, particularly for walkers new to Mull since some of the walks follow routes not shown on the OS maps. It is equally usefull for experienced walkers who may just want access points to miles of open spaces.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Mull 2 Sept. 2011
Format:Paperback
This is an interesting little book. Oddly there is some variation in describing route terrains; some over rating and some under rating; all within a competent walkers abilities though

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact Guide to Walks on Mull 25 Mar. 2015
By Carl D.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great guide for a variety of walks of differing levels on the Isle of Mull. I would recommend checking out walkhighlands.co.uk Isle of Mull walks in conjunction with the Cicerone guide just to confirm the route and the degree of difficulty. The book is nicely compact and had a plasticized cover to help keep it in good condition in rainy weather. Hill walking on even easy graded routes can be dangerous and you should go adequately geared as well as letting someone else know your route. Would recommend Cicerone guides and this one on the Isle of Mull is no exception.
