What to do and where to eat
Join Ewan and his team for a land-based wildlife adventure to discover the natural heritage of the Isle of Mull (Half Day & Evening Tours) and the real ‘Wild West’ – the Ardnamurchan Peninsula (Full Day Tour).
Have a look on their website to find the tour that suits you best!
Why not explore the Island with a bike? But not just any bike! Enjoy enormous fun with a motor assisted bike. Feels just like an invisible hand pushing you up the hill - amazing! Have a look on Mull Electric Bikes for more information. Mountain Bikes and Kids Bikes are also available. The bikes are now in Salen, a central place to start from!
Turus Mara (gaelic for sea journey) take you on a Wildlife and Seabird cruise to the Treshnish Isles, and Staffa . Boats leave from Ulva Ferry. Puffins arrive in early April and these islands offer one of the best wildlife spectacles in Europe.
About 1 Mile from us is Calgary Art in Nature. A very pleasant way to reach the famous Calgary beach, is through this beautiful native forest full of artistic details made out of wood, metal, stone or willow. The Calgary Tearoom serves delicious, light lunches, sandwiches and homebaking throughout the day. Open from April to October Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 4pm.
After a day out you can enjoy local fresh food with a lot grown organically in their own gardens at Am Birlinn. The restaurant is only 1 Mile away from us a pleasant walk for a great meal! We recommend to reserve a table in advance in the restaurants to avoid disappointment.
The Bellachroy in Dervaig, is the Islands oldest Inn, established in 1608. Only about 3.5 Miles from us. You can find great, local and homemade food. Lunch and Dinner Menus are available. Open daily, no need to book, if there is a table free inside take a seat, if not, enjoy the lovely beer garden outside or just take it away, could not be easier!

Walks on the doorstep
Here are some examples of walks starting close by:
You can walk to the beautiful hidden white sand beach Langamull, directly from our house. It is about 1 Mile to the beach, through woodland, over fields, following a burn (scottish for stream). The tour could be extended to a 5 Mile circular walk, following along the coast, past several white sand beaches to the old harbour of Croig. Walking back along the road, past Am Birlinn and back to Mornish Schoolhouse.Langamull beach looking north to the Islands Rum and Eigg
Beautiful walks with breath taking views to the outer Isles and North to Rum, Eigg, Muck and Skye
are on the peninsula of Caillach.
One can follow round from Caillach into Calgary bay.
Walking past two old, beautiful villages and it offers views out to the Treshnish headland and the Treshnish Isles.
An outstanding walk also only 2 Miles away from Mornish and full of historical interest and coastal panoramas is out to the ruins of Haunn on the Treshnish Estate, a circular walk of 4.5 Miles.Treshnish's herb rich meadows looking north
