After visiting Staffa under the rain, we were lucky to have a blue sky to explore Iona and its wonderful nunnery. After taking the boat back to Mull, we jumped into a coach that would take us back to Craignure where a ferry was waiting to take us back to Oban.
Mull was the last destination of our three isles tour, but I can’t really call it a destination as we only drove through it (which was a bit disappointing but the tour was only 10 hours so it’s impossible to visit everything).
Before entering the coach, I had time to take a quick panorama in Fionnphort. The sea was so blue, it was incredible.
The isle of Mull has been inhabited since the Ice Age and is rich in history. The woman who was driving the coach was very knowledgeable and told us a lot about the past of this glorious island.
The weather was amazing and I took so many pictures from the coach window. I just want to go back to Mull as soon as possible to hike or explore some of the hidden parts of this wonderful island, visit the castle, hikes and see some of the standing stones you can find there.
That day, we arrived just on time to try the famous Seafood Hut in Oban. The day before, we were too late and it was already closed when we arrived in town. It’s the best place to eat fresh seafood on the Pier at Oban. They serve only a few dishes including lobster, scallops, crabs, etc, prepared on the spot or to take home. We tried the lobster tails, the scallops and the mussels and everything was fantastic ans so cheap ! The scallops in the garlic butter were just a dream and so well cooked… I recommend this place !!
If you have any recommendations about visiting Mull, what to do, where to stay, feel free to share, we are definitively going back there in 2016.
