Holiday on Mull: what to bring

Holiday on Mull this year? Come prepared for any kind of weather — from blistering sunshine to mist and rain — and you’ll definitely make the most of your stay on this beautiful island.

It’s said that there’s no such thing as bad weather on Mull – just inappropriate clothing! That sounds a bit extreme but the gist of the saying is true.

On the Isle of Mull you can experience all four seasons in one day. So, pack a mac and enjoy the sun on Europe’s most beautiful and empty beaches whilst the sun is shining. When the clouds appear, enjoy them as part of the scenery until the rain really falls – then put up your hood and look forward to the roaring peat fire you will light when you get back to the cottage.

But, before you get back, the clouds may have already moved on and you’ll want to stop again and explore.
