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.
