MullRail was born out of the need to convey visitors the one and a quarter miles from Craignure Pier to Torosay Castle. To meet this objective a band of undaunted volunteers and rail enthusiasts constructed the railway through rock and bog so creating one of the most unique tourist experiences in the Inner Hebrides. Here then, in celebration of over 20 years of operation, is the story of how the railway was built and how, with growing visitor numbers, it continues to provide this vital role today.
Meet the railway’s locomotives and in part two take a ride in the cab from Torosay to Craignure! At Torosay Castle there is the opportunity to experience the world-renowned gardens in full spring majesty. Also savour the traditional atmosphere of a traction engine rally held in the grounds in support of the Mull & Iona Progressive Care Trust. The first event of its type ever held in the Hebrides! The Isle of Mull offers an experience like no other in terms of scenery and natural beauty and this programme introduces the viewer to the splendours of the Isle.
Take a gull’s eye view of the coastline, view wildlife, take a glimpse at Tobermory and more. The Isle of Mull ‘..the fairest … the first ‘and the rarest of them all!’
