The Mull and Iona Arts Trail invites you to take a journey through spectacular scenery to discover the vibrant arts and culture of the islands. Meet local artists in their studios and view their work in galleries, shops, cafes, performance spaces and even outdoors in the landscape.

The Arts Trail map, with over 60 venues, helps you find the art that interests you most, whether in paint, print, textiles, ceramic, wood, glass, bookmaking, photography, film, poetry, music or theatre. The Arts Trail venues are located throughout the islands with a backdrop of beautiful beaches, wild mountain landscapes and picturesque villages. 

Be sure to spend some time visiting Tobermory, which is a lively hub of all sorts of arts and crafts, with Mull Theatre and An Tobar Art Centre at its creative heart. At the very opposite end of Mull, the outstanding beauty of the Isle of Iona is a magnet for artists with a variety of studios and shops selling beautiful arts and crafts made on the island.


The outstanding scenery, natural light and evocative atmosphere of the islands of Mull and Iona have provided inspiration for artists for generations. This tradition continues today, with many island residents working in visual arts and crafts, establishing a dynamic creative community.

An Tobar Arts Centre & Mull Theatre in Tobermory are the main venues on Mull for producing and presenting performances including live music, theatre, dance, film, comedy and readings. They attract talent from outwith Mull to perform and display their work, as well as fostering the islands’ own home-grown artists.


West over Sea, the Tobermory Book Festival which launched in 2017, takes place over the last weekend in October. It features an impressive list of distinguished visiting authors and writers, who present readings, talks and book launches during a series of gatherings, lunches and dinners. The fabulous natural larder of Mull and Iona seems to pair well with books.
