Mull Music Festival

Mull Music Festival (April)

For four days every April, the every inch of Mull resonates with guitars, fiddles, drums and pipes.

Returning for 2015, the Mull Music Festival is a fantastic celebration of Scottish music. The event sees crowds flock to the island to dance into the wee hours accompanied by some of the finest folk-rock bands, traditional fiddle bands, ceilidh bands and Gaelic singers out there.

For a true taste of the musical culture on Mull, there is no other alternative.

Mendelssohn On Mull (July)

In 1829, German composer Felix Mendelssohn visited the majestic Isle of Mull. One hundred and eighty-five years later and his influence is still being felt.

Every year the island welcomes  a host of outstanding young musicians onto the island for a week of musical experimentation, inspiration and outstanding performances.

The event, which takes place between venues scattered across the craggy island, provides an utterly unique opportunity for professional musicians to develop their skills in a setting as beautiful as the music..

(And for those that don’t know their violins from their violas, there is an astonishing range of free concerts  held across the island’s venues.)

Mull Highland Games

Mull Highland Games (July)

Huge cabers are tossed end over end, immense stones are hoisted into the air and hammers are hurled off towards the horizon. All the while, the pipers drone, the drums roll and Irn Bru is consumed by the keg.

Welcome to the Mull Highland Games where the drama of the games is matched only by the spectacular beauty of the backdrop.

Mòd Ionadach na Dreòlluinn (September)

The Mòd is truly synonymous with the Isle of Mull. On the surface, The Mòd is a competitive event for Gaelic singers, choirs, poets and musicians. Underneath, it’s so much more.

The huge two-day event brings together islanders and visitors for a communal celebration and promotion of all things Gaelic and Highlands. When the competitions die down, the fiddles keep playing and the celebrations continue well into the night.

If you want to understand Mull, you have to understand the Mòd.

Tunnock’s Mull Rally (October)

Every October, the world’s top rally drivers descend upon the Isle of Mull for a weekend of speed.

For three days, Mull’s ancient landscape echos with the howl of engines as rally drivers push themselves and their cars to the limit, hurtling along rural roads lined with walls of cheering islanders.

Motor racing has never seen such a beautiful setting. (Not that the drivers get to look at it, though!)
