Forests on the Isle of Mull
Mull’s forests are wonderful places to see some of the island’s rich wildlife, and with plenty of woodland close to the shore you might well see dolphins and sea birds as well as squirrels and crossbills. The trees hide intriguing historic features too, from ancient standing stones to forgotten villages and atmospheric graveyards.
Mull is known as Eagle Island due to its population of huge white tailed eagles and majestic golden eagles. A visit to the Mull Eagle Watch project is highly recommended!
