Keep your eyes peeled for the magical minke whale as well as the mighty basking sharks, harbour porpoise, dolphins and very occasionally Orca. There are a range of different trips offered but the weekly trip to Rum is not to be missed.

Aros Park

Aros Park is one of the most attractive features in the Tobermory surrounds. The park entrance is about half a mile from the centre of town, however, it can also be reached by a very scenic footpath starting at the car park at Ledaig next to MacGochan's pub.

The park is very well maintained by Forest Enterprise and has been developed as a recreational woodland. The company has gone to a lot of trouble to provide good parking, disabled access, clear, unobstructed paths, fabulous children's play areas, barbeque facilities and toilets. All these are free of charge.

Baliscate Standing Stones

The Standing Stones are situated in a field just 5 minutes walk up the lane behind Mull Pottery (car parking at the Pottery) on the Baliscate Estate in Tobermory. The walk from Tom-A-Mhuillin will take 10 minutes but don't be tempted to take your car up the lane as the track is very rough. The stones are visible in the field to the right after 400 metres. Go through the gate and up the hill to the stones. It can be very boggy so stout footwear is recommended.

White-tailed Eagle Viewing Hide

The hide is situated on the shore of Loch Frisa, just 15 minutes drive from Tobermory. Each trip is two hours and there are 30 places on each trip. Adults (including RSPB members): 4. Under 16s: 2. Please pay the ranger on the day by cash or cheque (‘Mull & Iona Community Trust'). All funds raised go back to the Mull Eagle Watch project to help create new local jobs and to local good causes on Mull & Iona. Booking essential on Tel: 01680 812556

Tobermory Golf Club

Tobermory Golf Course is a 9 hole course set on the cliff tops above Tobermory Bay. It offers superb panoramic views which includes Ardnamurchan, Loch Sunart and, on a clear day, the Isle of Skye.
Due to the hilly nature of the course, it provides a tough challenge to all golfers. Visitors can be sure of a friendly welcome and can play the course virtually anytime. (Competition days are usually a Sunday).
