Craignure is the main point of entry to Mull for visitors from the south, though the little ferry to Fishnish carries its own share of the traffic from the Morvern peninsula. Behind them rise Mull's mountains. The most famous is the great rocky Munro, Ben More, but there are a score of lower, unjustly-neglected peaks. To the west is the Ardmeanach peninsula, a rugged wilderness with dramatic cliffs and geological wonders.
The road to Iona winds through Glen More, the only access to the interior. Beyond it, the southern coastline is one Mull's most dramatically beautiful areas, where sea-lochs penetrate far inland and the mountains reach down almost to the sea, and the views stretch down the Argyll coastline and over countless islands.
