Wildlife on Mull...
53 miles from one end to another, rising from sea level to 966 m (3168ft) and a population of only @ 3,500 The Isle of Mull is the perfect habitat for a multitude of species. Add to that the clear blue waters of the Hebridean Sea and the myriad of islands and islets scattered in them and you have a nature lover's paradise.
For many bird life is the main attraction.sea eagles, golden eagles, owls, harriers, divers, puffins.............. only a fraction of the species easily easily observed on Mull
Strangly Mull has no foxes or sqiuirrels but makes up for the lack in the number of otters that can easily be observed hunting and at play.
It's a good idea to take a guided wildlife tour of the island near the start of your stay then return at your leisure to those areas thet are of particular interest to you.

Take to the seas for whales, dolphins, sharks, seals and those elusive birds that only come ashore to breed.
Best of all visit the Treshnish isles for puffins and the amazing breeding station of Dun Cruit.
Of course if you are realy lucky you may end up watching dolphins perform in the bay just outside your window!
