Isle of Mull

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.

“An enjoyable tour of a beautiful area. This would have been 5 star but the pace was quite rushed and there were a lot of long coach journeys. Unfortunately there were late changes to the hotels and I only had one night out of eight as originally booked. The biggest change was to move from the Royal Mile at the centre of Edinburgh to Haymarket a mile and a half away. I was only informed of the changes when I received the receipt for my final payment. I have travelled many times with GRJ and not had any problems before but the lack of communication and substitution of inferior hotels have made me reluctant to book again.
