The Isle of Mull has become one of the most popular wedding

destination on the west coast of Scotland because of its superb

scenery and the romantic backdrop of its coloured houses on

the waterfront. An abundance of wildlife including otters, golden

eagles and white tailed eagles, to name but a few, can be found

around the island.

Couples can be married in the Old Court Room in Tobermory,

or in one of our scenic spots, on the beach, near a waterfall,

on Beinn Mhòr, beside a loch, on a boat, or in one of the many


The Island of Mull is the second largest island of the Inner

Hebrides. Tobermory, (Gaelic Tobar Mhoire, meaning "Mary's

well”), is the capital of the island and legend has it that the wreck

of a Spanish galleon, laden with gold, lies somewhere in the mud

at the bottom of Tobermory Bay.

The Court House and Prison was built in 1862, on Breadalbane

Street. The ceremony room is now in the old courtroom which

still has lots of original features. Above the bench is a

reproduction, of the “burgh coat of arms” which was used up to

1975, as well as examples by other local artists. This room can

comfortably accommodate up to 44 people and has stunning

panoramic views over Tobermory Bay and the Sound of Mull,

with the hills of Morvern and Ardnamurchan in the background.
