The variety of habitats found on Mull provides an abundance of wildlife. Red deer are frequently seen on the hills, while eagles soar overhead, otters frequent the many sea lochs and inlets and birdsong can be heard everywhere. Seals are easily seen basking on the skerries and from a good vantage point it is even possible to see dolphins and other cetaceans. There is possibly no better place in Scotland have the opportunity to see wildlife while walking at any time of the year.
From Achaban House, there are several short coastal walks and some longer circular walks, including access to Iona on foot on the short ferry crossing.
