Isle of Mull?

Jump to last reply

I posted a previous question about travel from Pitlochry to York over 4 days and received very helpful responses from janisj and Gardyloo, among others. So helpful that we have decided to incorporate those suggestions (Durham, Holy Isle, York) into our upcoming trip (September, flying into Heathrow) and spend those 4 days next May in Scotland. This partly due to a vote by our travel companions to see Mull. So. . . new question.

Late May, four 50's-60's adults, traveling by train, more into wine than whisky. We are doing a walking trip ending at Pitlochry. We are thinking of heading to Mull for some beach walk/scenery/wildlife time, maybe a pony trek. I am thinking of something like this:

Day 1 Pitlochry to Stirling, explore the town and castle on foot

Day 2: train to Oban and ferry to Mull

Days 3 & 4 Mull

Day 5 ferry to Oban and train to Glasgow (or Edinburgh) (or Falkirk?)

Day 6 Train to London

Is that too much time on Mull (3 nights)? Should we spend one in Oban instead? Skip Stirling and add a night somewhere else? Stay the last night in Glasgow, Falkirk, or Edinburgh? (We will have been in Edinburgh 2 nights earlier in the trip, so this question is mainly driven by the choice between different train routes to London from Glasgow versus Edinburgh).

Thanks for your help.
