I was reading about the Isle of Mull and I came across this bit of information about Ulva, a small island to the west of Mull and worth a day trip.
My favorite quote has to be on how to get the ferry across from Mull to Ulva … “To summon the Ferry: When you arrive at Ulva Ferry, you will find a notice. To summon the ferry, uncover the red panel. Cover the red panel as the boat approaches.” Class!
Some ideas of what to do when you get to the Island are to go for a walk, check out Sheila’s Cottage (a restored cottage showing what it was like a long time ago) or have a lovely local meal at the Boathouse.
There are a number of walks you can take including a one hour farm circuit or a 6-mile walk from the ferry to Ormaig. The Boathouse is run by Emma Mckie and Rebecca Munro and they serve local shellfish, including Ulva Soriby Bay oysters, prawns and lobsters.
