Escorted Rail Tours to Isle of Mull

One of Scotland's most popular tourist attractions

With its undulating landscapes, picturesque villages and rare wildlife, the Isle of Mull is a popular destination for any visitor to Scotland. Standing in the Inner Hebrides just off the mainland's west coast, the island is one of Britain's largest and most famous.

Duart Castle
One of the Isle of Mull's most popular attractions is undoubtedly Duart Castle, the ancestral home of the Maclean Clan. The castle originally dates back to the 13th century, and was the principal base for the Isle of Mull's seaborn power for hundreds of years. Duart was allowed to fall into disrepair amid ownership struggles between the Macleans and the Dukes of nearby Argyll, but thankfully these issues were resolved in the late 19th century and the castle has since been beautifully preserved.

Occupying a superb position overlooking Loch Don, the castle and its beauty have not gone unnoticed by film makers. Duart has featured in a number of film and television productions, perhaps the most famous of these being the Sean Connery film 'Entrapment'. Today the castle is open to the public, with exhibitions in its stately rooms and even its dungeons, as well as an opportunity to admire the views from the top of the keep.

What can be said about Scotland? For one, the scenery (providing it’s not so misty you can’t see the hand in front of your face) in this wild corner of the world can never just be ‘nice’ or ‘pretty’, it can only ever be breathtakingly dramatic, awe-inspiring, and slightly ominous, and you can see all of it in its disconcerting glory through its vast selection of rail journeys.

How many of us have wanted to walk straight into the pages of our favourite books? While it might not be possible quite yet to experience the lives of the fictional heroes and heroines we’ve walked side by side through life with for a little while, and sometimes who’d want to (think of just about any character from a Stephen King novel).
