Tobermory is the capital of the Isle of Mull and by far its largest settlement. Brightly coloured houses stretch around a sheltered bay, with quieter, residential pockets scattered along the hillside above. If the setting looks familiar, it might be because the town was the location for the BBC's children's TV series Balamory. In real life there are lots of attractions for adults as well as kids, including a popular distillery, small museum and a catch-and-release aquarium, as well as dozens of gift shops and cafés stocked to the rafters with tempting cakes. We also enjoyed an excellent evening meal at The Mishnish restaurant on the main street. A word of warning: we suspect some visitors try to "do Mull" by attempting to visit Tobermory and Iona in a single day. This involves several hours of driving (mostly on single-track roads) and won't leave enough time to do justice to either location.
