Autumn on Mull can be a wonderful time to visit the island. Once the schools have gone back the island pace seems to slow a little. The days are still relatively long, and there is plenty of opportunity for wildlife watching, walking and exploring. The Holiday Mull calendar has details of any events that will be on during the autumn months – quite often there are shows on at the Mull Theatre or music at An Tobar.
The island changes colour. The greens of the hills and trees turn to autumn golds and yellows, as sometimes seen in Tobermory Bay (below).
The weather can be dramatic as this storm in September 2013 on Loch na Keal shows!
But the sunsets can be wonderful, this one was in September last year at Haunn.

There are various people offering photographic tours and courses now on the island. Islandscape Photography is probably the closest to here, based in Tobemrory. I did a course one winter with Sam, and enjoyed it hugely, as well as learning lots of new tips about landscape photography. These boats are a great subject and even a damp autumn day can yield results!
Montbretia is growing in the Treshnish gardens in autumn, and along some of the roadsides.
The cottages at Treshnish are all well insulated, and all but Shieling have a wood burning stove – so whatever the autumn on Mull weather you can come back safe in the knowledge that your autumn evening should be warm and cosy!
