Tigh Gorm is situated within a pleasant mix of similar residential and holiday let properties in the upper part of Tobermory. It enjoys an open, north easterly with glimpses of Tobermory Bay to the side. It is within easy walking distance of Tobermory’s bustling Main Street and its colourful harbour.
The Isle of Mull
The second largest of the Inner Hebrides, Mull is a highly accessible island, being reached by a forty-five minute vehicular ferry from Oban. Services from Lochaline on Morvern and Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula are also available. There is a small airstrip at Glenforsa suitable for private aircraft and a main line train service from Glasgow to Oban with some trains connecting with the ferry.
The colourful harbour town of Tobermory is a popular tourist destination and as such provides an excellent range of dining, cultural and shopping opportunities as well as standard services, including a medical centre, churches, a high school with a primary section, and good sports facilities including a scenic nine-hole golf course.
Outside the buzz of Tobermory, the Isle of Mull boasts extraordinary and diverse scenery. From the dramatic Gribun cliffs and the shark-fin peak of Ben More to the white sands of Calgary Bay, Mull has undoubted appeal for all. A multitude of sea lochs give Mull over 500km of coastline to be explored by kayaks, yachts, divers or on land by foot or mountain bike. The awe-inspiring landscape is also a strong draw for artists of every discipline.
Accompanying the varied scenery is a diverse range of wildlife. Mull is home to a variety of rare birds including golden eagles, white-tailed sea eagles and hen harriers. The island is famous for its roaming herds of red deer, and otters may be seen dining on wild brown trout on the Sound of Mull, or sea otters playing in secluded bays. Cetacean and shark-watching trips are a favourite with tourists, as are trips to the Treshnish Isles to visit the local puffin and seal populations or to Staffa to admire the stunning geology of Fingal’s Cave.
Due to its size and diverse range of attractions, Mull has a longer tourist season than many of the other Hebridean islands, still receiving large numbers of visitors into October. The island also hosts a number of music and arts festivals throughout the year.
