Welcome to Salen



Salen is the ideal location for those wanting to visit all corners of Mull.  Just a 15 minute drive from the ferry terminal at Craignure, the village is also within easy driving distance of Tobermory and Dervaig in the north. The west coast of Mull is also just a short drive from Salen, cut across Mull via the 3 mile road to Gruline to visit Ulva or Ben More.

In August every year there is an agricultural show in Salen.  The show field is actually at Aros Bridge, just north of Salen itself.  There are livestock exhibited, sheep, cattle, poultry etc.  and pet shows for both working dogs and more pampered pooches!  People exhibit produce and crafts and there are demonstrations of skills such as shearing and chainsaw sculpting.  All this as well as the perennial favourites - the produce and beer tents!

Glenforsa Air Strip is just outside Salen, there are no longer  commercial flights to Mull but it is used by private planes.
