The ultimate Scottish wildlife holiday packed with land & sea-based activities.

Of all the Scottish islands, the Isle of Mull boasts one of the most diverse eco-systems in Britain. During your week-long stay you will be searching for a whole range of wildlife, from otters to red deer, puffins to eagles, seals to harbour porpoise, and dolphins to minke whales. This Scottish wildlife holiday includes three guided experiences: a day at sea in the company of expert wildlife guides, a land-based wildlife safari that reaches some of the more hidden corners of the island and finally another boat excursion to the Isles of Treshnish and Staffa. You’ll also have plenty of time to explore at leisure – whether that’s frequenting the bars and restaurants of bustling Tobermory or seeking out the spiritual ambience of tiny Iona, off the far tip of the larger Isle of Mull.

If you don’t have the time for a week-long Scottish wildlife holiday, then take a look instead at our four-night Mull Wildlife Experience .

Hotel Option A – Dervaig

Situated in the pretty Victorian village of Dervaig, this 17th century inn provides traditional island hospitality, regular live music and wholesome highland fayre.  Hearty meals and lighter bar snacks both feature fresh seafood and the finest Mull beef and venison. Accommodation (including family rooms) is quietly situated away from the hustle and bustle of the bar, and residents can escape to a private lounge/TV room with glorious views over the village and glen.

Hotel Option B – Tobermory

Your beautifully appointed guest house is a welcoming haven, where you’ll stay in a luxurious and comfortable home from home. You’ll have your choice of dinner options in Tobermory – from the freshest fish & Chips from the van by the harbour, to more extensive dining in local restaurants. We’ll provide the up-to-date lowdown and recommendations before you travel.


This holiday is based on the Isle of Mull off the west coast of Scotland. We can arrange hire cars from convenient airports if required. If you prefer to travel without a car, this holiday can be tailored to suit using public transport – just let us know your preferences.

Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to help you get the most from your holiday. Included will be some information on the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust to help you learn more about their work in conserving whales, dolphins and porpoises in Western Scotland, along with how you can help their efforts with their “Whale Track” app and by visiting their discovery centre.

All itineraries and room types are presented subject to availability at specific hotels.

We work hard to make sure the unexpected doesn’t affect your trip. On rare occasions, changes or cancellations may occur, affecting accommodation, transport or excursions. We are committed to informing you of any such circumstances and will use our knowledge and resources to offer suitable alternatives wherever possible.
