Mountain Walking

There are many beautiful walks up the mountains of Mull. Ben More is a Munro (3000 ft +) which can be tackled from north or south.

There are also many Corbetts and Grahams to test the most ardent walker.

Maps and guides available at Ardachy House Hotel

We welcome groups of walkers and ramblers>

MOuntain Biking Isle of Mull  

Mountain Biking & Motorcycling

Mull has some exceptionally quiet roads round the coast and over the hills all of which are fun to cycle but for the more adventurous cyclist there are many tracks and paths to follow off-road.

Bikes are available to hire on the island.

sea Kayaking on Mull  

Sea Kayaking

The coastline is breath-taking just to look at from the shore but better still from the sea. There are caves and cliffs as well as an extra ordinary chance of seeing wildlife including otters and whales.

The tides and currents are very challenging so care needs to be taken.

Wildlife Watching  

Wildlife Watching

Eagles and other raptors enjoy the wild nature of Mull and the coastline is home to the reclusive sea otter which is a massive thrill to witness. Long lenses are essential if you want to catch a shot of them!

There are whales, dolphins and sharks to spot as you enjoy the sheer pleasure of a beachcombing walk where few others have been.

scuba diving isle of mull  

Scuba Diving

The Sound of Mull has a variety of different dive sites suitable for divers with a range of experience.

The main ship wreck sites include Hispania, Shuna, Thesis, Rondo and Breda, all of which allow you see the beautiful marine life up close. 

If you fancy being adventurous, venture outside the Sound of Mull and check out the stunning Canna wall and the Firth of Lorn. These dives are usually deeper and more tidal so would be suitable for the more experienced diver.

Northern Lights  


The Isle of Mull has very little light pollution so on a clear night, the sky over Mull is great for star-gazing where you can see some truly spectacular sights.

As the skies are so clear over the Isle of Mull, it is possible to witness the phenomenon of the Northern Lights which can be seen annually in the Northern regions of Scotland.

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis to use its correct name, are regularly visible during the winter months, early spring and late autumn.


Drawing, Painting & Photography

The landscapes on the Isle of Mull are just breathtaking. The colours and shapes are perfect for drawing, painting and photography.

We welcome groups of artists who come back again and again to capture Mull in all its beauty.

Rock Climbing on the Isle of Mull  

Rock Climbing

Go rock climbing on Erraid just round the corner from Iona where the single pitch climbs on the astonishing pink rock is an experience never to be forgotten on a sunny day.

You can lie on the beach for a lunch time rest.

Guide books are available, or speak to Hannah at Ardachy House Hotel who is a climbing instructor.
