Mull is the 2nd largest island of Inner Hebrides (after Skye), located off the west coast of Scotland in council area of Bute and Argyll. With an area of 875.35 km2 (337.97 ml2) Mull is the 4th largest Scottish island and the 4th largest island that surrounds Great Britain (excluding Ireland). In 2011 the resident population of Isle of Mull was 2,800. During the summer months this is supplemented by a lot of tourists. Much of the island's population lives in Tobermory, which is the only burgh until 1973, and its capital city. Tobermory is home to the only single malt Scotch whisky distillery on Isle of Mull: Tobermory distillery (former Ledaig).
Until the 19th century, fishing, farming and burning seaweed for kelp ash were the main economic activities on Isle of Mull. Tobermory was built in 1788 by the British Fisheries Society as planned settlement to support fishing industry. In the mid 19th century Highland Potato Famine and Highland Clearances reduced the population by 2/3 and the economy collapsed. In early 20th century there were more sheep on the island than people.
In 1964 the economy started to revive when the building of Craignure Pier began to bring tourists. Currently, tourism is the mainstay of island's economy. Ecotourism became quite popular from the 1990s: in 2005 the reintroduction of white-tailed eagles became an ecotourist attraction.
Ferry links to Isle of Mull from mainland include Oban to Craignure (45 minutes), Kilchoan to Tobermory (35 minutes) and Lochaline to Fishnish (15 minutes). Advance bookings are not required for Kilchoan or Fishnish ferries as access to the two ferry terminals on mainland side is through single-track roads.
