It is a place everyone has heard of, thanks to Paul McCartney's late-1970s hit record. His celebration of the Mull's wild beauty sold 2.5 million copies and he still owns an estate close to Campbeltown.
There are few visitors. Inverary, at the northern head of the peninsula, is over an hour's drive from Glasgow and from there it is still some 80 miles down to the Mull. For the last six miles a very narrow road winds across the headland before dropping steeply to an old lighthouse by the water's edge.
