See the hauntingly beautiful Island of Mull whilst discovering the island’s history scarred with the legacy of “The Clearances”. Step back in the footsteps of St Columba when we visit where Christianity began in Scotland on the Island of Iona. Soothe your soul on a voyage out to the Island of Staffa, once inhabited by our ancient ancestors, it is now home to a puffin colony and the famous giant – Fingal. You can see his cave on the approach. One of the most important parts of the trip is to immerse yourself in the local culture which centers itself around the Gaelic Tradition. Experience the real Mull as told by the people who live and work there, including our special guest, local Gaelic speaker and singer Alasdair Whyte.
