Content: We hope you enjoyed this itinerary, but whatever order you decide to do things here’s some tips to help: - there’s a lot of single track roads on Mull so during the summer getting around can take longer than you think - there’s only one main supermarket in Tobermory and it can also get busy at peak times - Sea Life Tours only go when the sea isn’t too rough so best to book that early so if it’s cancelled you can always go on a later day - make sure to rest and enjoy the natural landscape - wildlife like otters only appear when everything is quiet and still!
