Offshore Islands

Many islands lie off the west coast of the Isle of Mull and the Isle of Iona. Few are inhabited, but several can be visited; all are important wildlife habitats.

Of the many uninhabited islands, the beautiful Treshnish Isles are havens for wildlife, which you can visit on one of the daily boat trips departing from Tobermory, Ulva Ferry, Fionnphort and Iona. The nearby Isle of Staffa (of Fingal’s Cave fame) is also a very popular destination, its basalt columns enchanting visitors over the centuries.

In addition, you can access the islands of Ulva, Gometra and Erraid – each small in population but large in character!
