Tobermory, Mull's 'capital' - was made famous by the BBC children's television programme, Balamory! With its characteristic colourful houses, beautiful natural harbour, distillery, pubs, restaurants and many other places of interest, this is a great place for days out and for shopping. Mull is also fortunate to have a fascinating history; relics of its incredible past remain - from standing stones, stone circles and crannogs, to more recent structures - including Moy Castle and Duart Castle.
