Mull’s forests are wonderful places to see some of the island’s rich wildlife, and with plenty of woodland close to the shore you might well see dolphins and sea birds as well as squirrels and crossbills. The trees hide intriguing historic features too, from ancient standing stones to forgotten villages and atmospheric graveyards.

When visiting the island, make sure you catch a glimpse of Mull's famous sea eagles, at Mull Eagle Watch. We are partners with Mull and Iona Community Trust.

Our guide map of the Forests of Mull (PDF 4MB) will help you explore, with details of lots of woodland trails.
