Sound of Mull
The Sound of Mull is a sheltered haven in the wild hills on the west coast of Scotland. The worst of the weather blows over the mountain tops leaving the rich waters in the lee of the wind. Taking advantage of the shelter, ships use the Sound as a poor weather route. However many of these voyages ended in disaster leaving a trail of shipwrecks for us to explore.
A great way to start the season – sheltered waters with good wrecks and a range of scenic sites holding a wide range of diverse critters. Oban is within an evenings drive of much of the top of England and most of Scotland making the sound a perfect weekend destination.
