Mull – Tobermory/Craignure - Mull’s Torosay Castle
(half day)

Today’s tour takes you through the lovely scenery of the Island of Mull to the small ferry port of Craignure. Continue on from here for the short journey to Torosay Castle. Torosay was built by the famed architect David Bryce in Victorian Scottish Baronial style in 1858. The 12 acres of spectacular grounds contain a wealth of interest including fine formal, Japanese and walled gardens. A pathway through its gardens is lined with statues, while inside, 19th Century furniture and paintings can be found.

Today the current Laird and his mother Mrs. James (subject to availability) as well as the head gardener if needed, will welcome you to the castle and be delighted to show you around this house and its lovely gardens. Enjoy a refreshing cup of tea or coffee with Scottish shortbread or cakes before returning once more to your coach for the return journey to Tobermory and your ship.
