Here are just a few ideas of what to do during your stay with us but please do take a look at the LOCAL GUIDE drop down menu for more information and lots of ideas

Tiroran is midway between Tobermory to the north and Iona (and onwards to Staffa) to the south and is under one hour away from both attractions, there are many fantastic beaches on Mull including Calgary to the north west and Uisken across the loch from Tiroran, Carsaig overlooks the paps of Jura and is one of the many spectacular views and landscapes of Mull

Tiroran rests at the foot of Benmore and this is the only Munro mountain on the island, we can give you advice about the best way to ascend and Ben Teallach mountain offers a less challenging climb where you might just find the remains of a WW2 dakota

The Fossil Tree (McCulloch’s Tree) is a fantastically scenic walk from Tiroran along the Ardmecanach Peninsula – The best place to start this walk is from the Whitetail coffee shop at the Steadings beside the hotel

Opportunities to take some of your best wildlife and scenic photographs are guaranteed with whatever you choose to do whilst here on Mull and especially driving along the west coast heading north from Tiroran, we can advise you and guide you in the right direction throughout your stay.

And of course, a trip to Iona and Staffa cannot be missed

Ardalanish Isle of Mull Weavers – Across the loch at Bunessan  – Native Kyloe Highland cattle and Hebridean sheep are reared naturally and the sheep’s wool is used for weaving their unique and distinctive tweeds, a must visit place for its beautiful location, fantastic beach and shop.

Isle of Erraid – A tiny and beautiful tidal island close to Fionnphort which is a 45 minute drive from Tiroran – one of the locations featured in the novel Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, David Balfour, the hero was marooned on this island having been shipwrecked on the Torran Rocks, Stevenson’s father was involved in the construction of the nearby lighthouses.

Isle of Mull Cheese  – If you visit Tobermory whilst you stay with us this place is not to be missed, beautiful and tranquil with its own Glass Barn tea room and en route to Glengorm Castle, both locations offer great places to eat and stunning walking, however not to buy the Isle of Mull Cheese whilst visiting our island would surely be a sin as it is stocked in almost every good and great delicatessen including Fortnum & Masons and Harrods.
