Visit Tobermory and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Tobermory, Argyll and Bute, is on the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. Capital of the large but not highly-populated Mull island, Tobermory presents an excellent safe anchorage in its bay. This anchorage led to its choice as the site of a fishing station when it was only a small village. In 1788 the British Fisheries Society built at Tobermory a planned village, with streets rising in tiers round the bay. Fishing flourished, and there was also trade in fishing gear and supplies until in the 19th century the capricious herring deserted the West. Now that agriculture and the tourist industry supply most of the work here, with tourism in the lead, it is a point of call on the trip to Iona.
Tobermory was undoubtedly the place where one of the ships of the Spanish Armada was sunk in 1588 — traditionally the treasure ship. There have been several unsuccessful attempts to salvage her.
Some 4 miles North West is Glengorm Castle, a 19th century building with superb views to Ardnamurchan and Skye.
