Welcome to Ulva off Isle of Mull

Welcome to Ulva, off Isle of Mull!

What a super island, the Isle of Ulva, a short Ferry ride from the Isle of Mull off the West Coast of Scotland! A warm welcome and lovely seafood awaits at the inviting restaurant just on the Island. With views to the magnificent munro of Ben More and the rather smaller graham of Beinn Fhada, it's a fantastic place to sit outside and enjoy a cup of tea!

Standing Stone on Isle of Ulva.

Some super walks await visitors to the Island, taking in some recent history and some not so recent!

Ruins on Isle of Ulva.

Ruins at Starvation Point, a sad and evocative reminder of the Highland Clearances. The name says it all.

Thomas Telford Church, Isle of Ulva.

The engineering genius Thomas Telford took time out from building the Caledonian Canal, countless bridges and harbours to design Churches erected all over the Highlands of Scotland.

For accommodation on the Isle of Mull try The Old Stables.
