Picnics with a view – and plenty of wildlife to watch


Discover Mull's wild coast

Garmony is a great place to admire the view or have a picnic. If you feel like some exercise, the coastal trail between here and Fishnish is an excellent way to explore Mull’s wild sea shore. The sharp, plaintive call of oystercatchers makes a perfect soundtrack to the scene, and if you’re lucky you may spot otters or porpoises.

Our guide map to Mull’s forests will help you enjoy the landscape, culture, history and wildlife of this amazing island.
