The colourful waterfront of Tobermory Bay

Welcome to Tobermory


Few would fail to recognise the colourful waterfront of Tobermory, Mull's main town. 

Situated in the north of the island, it is a 40 minute drive from the main ferry port of Craignure.  The town offers a wide range of accommodation (listed>>) as well as various pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit everyone.

Places to visit include Tobermory Distillery, which conducts guided tours explaining the whole process of whisky making - with a sample of the finished product at the end of the tour.  Easily found at Ledaig Carpark.

An Tobar Arts Centre, Gallery & Cafe is situated above Main Street, overlooking the bay on Argyll Terrace.  Formerly the town's Primary school, it was superbly renovated in the late 1990's to become a centre for both performing and visual arts.  The exhibitions change on a monthly basis and there are concerts and ceildhs put on throughout the year (more frequently in the summer).

'Tobermory' is the anglicised name for Tobar Mhoire meaning 'Well of St Mary'.
