Port of Tobermory

Tobermory is the capital of the Isle of Mull in Scotland, located in the Inner Hebrides. It's a quaint and colorful town that was originally built as a fishing port in the late 18th century and was actually the only burgh on the Isle of Mull until the 1970s. Thanks to its picturesque qualities, today Tobermory is a popular destination for vacationers who want to enjoy its slow pace and charming attractions.

Tobermory has a small downtown area lined with shops featuring local handicrafts, eateries, an art gallery and a live music venue. There's even a small, nine-hole golf course in Tobermory Bay with gorgeous panoramic views for visitors to enjoy. Another popular spot is the Tobermory Distillery, which offers tours and tastings of local craft whisky.
