No tour of mull can be made without mentioning its geological formation. Indeed a geological survey of Scotland in 1924 proclaimed that Mull included the most complicated igneous centre ever examined in the world at that time. We will show you the volcanoes; dykes and rocks that make Mull such a popular destination.
