The brightly painted town of Tobermory is the main town on the
Hebridean island of Mull, in Scotland. Built as a fishing port in 1788, and based on a design by Thomas Telford, the town curves around the harbour and
rises into the hillside beyond.
Tobermory is one of the prettiest
ports in Scotland, thanks to the colourful houses and a sheltered bay
where legend has it one of the Spanish Armada ships sank in 1588
carrying gold bullion.
The island is a popular tourist
destination in summer, and is particularly suited to those seeking a
holiday exploring the ‘Great Outdoors,’ in the form of remote beaches,
lonely mountain peaks, and ancient castles.
