Buying in Tobermory

Tobermory is the principal town of the Isle of Mull in the Scottish Inner Hebrides. It is located on the east coast of Mishnish, the most northerly part of the island, near the northern entrance of the Sound of Mull. The village was founded as a fishing port in 1788 and the town curves around the harbour and rises into the hillside beyond. It has a current population of about 1,00 residents, about a third of the island’s total, though this population swells throughout the late spring, summer, and early autumn as visitors come to the attractive town. It is also the setting of the very popular children’s TV show Balamory.

Tobermoray, albeit remote, is a bustling small town by any standard and is one of the prettiest ports in Scotland, thanks to the colourful houses and a sheltered bay. The town attracts thousands of visitors annually, and the main street has many shops and services dedicated to that with eateries, hotels, and guest houses, plus an excellent selection of local produce, arts and crafts. The Isle of Mull and Iona generally have become one of the premier destinations for wildlife watching in the United Kingdom. Thousands of people are attracted to the islands in the hope of catching a glimpse of the rare and unusual Golden and White-tailed Eagles, and an abundance of other birds and mammals. The seas off the coast of Mull are particularly important feeding areas for whales, dolphins, and basking sharks.

Other things to do in Tobermory include exploring the Mull Museum, Tobermory Whisky Distillery, Mull Aquarium and Glengorm Castle.  There is also a 9-hole golf course in the cliff tops above Tobermory Bay offering a tough challenge with spectacular view across the town and Peninsula and, on a clear day, even the Isle of Skye can be seen.

In terms of reaching Tobermory, ferries sail regularly between the village and the mainland to Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, but principal access to the island is via ferry between Oban and Craignure. Craignure is around 22 miles (35 kilometres) from Tobermory. This is the main route for visitors to the island. An additional ferry sails between Lochaline on the mainland and Fishnish.

As for local schooling then, the local primary school is Tobermory Primary. The island’s only High School – Tobermory High School, is also found within the town and secondary-age pupils from across the island attend.
