Our friends on Mull
Here are a few of our friends on Mull, offering you a selection of activities and places to go and eat, that we ourselves enjoy!
Dervaig Stores and PO.
Our first stop for food and drink shopping, and its on your way here from the ferry. Dugie is a fantastic shopkeeper and stocks all kinds of things including lots of local produce and a good selection of whole foods in addition to everything else a local shop would stock! Open 7 days a week – limited hours on a Sunday.
Mull and Iona Food Trail
Favourite places to eat
Ballygown is about 25 minutes drive from here towards Ulva Ferry. It is a relaxed and friendly place to eat delicious home cooked food in Jeanette and Gary’s sitting room! Definitely pre-book, BYOB.
Am Birlinn is serious about food miles and can tell you exactly how far your ingredients have travelled! Check their website for opening hours which change periodically. Pre-book.
The Boathouse on Ulva
The Boathouse is a great place to go for lunch, crossing in the private ferry and sitting outside looking at the view whilst enjoying the freshest shellfish and wonderful soups and home baking. Walking here is lovely too.
Calgary Arts and Robin’s Boat
Calgary Tearoom does teas, home baking and light lunches – and lots of local art. There is a lovely walk through the woods to the beach, look for sculptures along the different paths. At the beach, on sunny days, Robin’s Boat sells Isle of Mull Ice Cream.
