Winter on the Isle of Mull is beautiful and dramatic with iconic wildlife, dynamic ever-changing landscapes and some of the darkest skies in Europe.
Wonderful wildlife species such as Golden Eagle, White-tailed Eagle, Otter, Hen Harrier and Red Deer are present year round on the island, providing a great chance to observe them in their stunning winter surroundings.
Due to the dynamic weather systems often experienced on the island, the photography opportunities are endless, with angry seas, moody skies and constantly changing light patterns. A later sunrise and earlier sunset also makes the ‘golden hour’ more accessible.
As day turns to night on the island we’re blessed to be under some of the darkest skies in Europe. Admire the stars, planets and constellations which make up the starfields and give yourself the opportunity to see the northern lights.
