During the last few years we seem to have ended up going to Mull and some of the surrounding islands (Staffa and Iona) for day trips. Well, we usually stay in Oban and catch the early boat to Mull. Mull is a great place, not too far away and very beautiful. Here are some of my photos from Mull and the surrounding islands.
