There is a wild beauty about the islands of Mull and Iona in winter.
As the salty wind blows the trees clean of leaves and flint-flecked waves break steadily on quiet shores, the turn of the season strips the island back to its most stark. This starkness is felt in the sea arches that stand like ancient battlements, the gulls that wheel white as snow, and the ethereal light that glimmers across land, sea and sky.
With your expert Wilderness Scotland guide, enjoy discovering these stunning Inner Hebridean islands. Based on the Isle of Mull, traverse the captivating and diverse landscapes while immersing yourself in island history, culture and traditions.
Spend a day on the evocative Isle of Iona, home to hidden bays, rugged cliffs and a fascinating history. With the shorter daylight hours and quieter coastlines that winter brings, look out for wildlife synonymous with Mull, including red deer, otters, sea eagles and owls. Spend your evenings in your cosy winter hideaway, enjoying the woodfired hot tub and a crackling fire. With Hebridean skies being some of the darkest in Europe, bring your day to the perfect close by looking up at an ink-black, silent sky filled with the sharpest of stars.
