2020 Islander Rates
As in previous years, Turus Mara invite Residents of Mull and Iona to take advantage of a hefty 20% discount on all of our trips to visit the awe inspiring Fingal’s Cave on Staffa and the puffins with their thousands of feathered cousins in the Treshnish Isles. So, whether you head out with us most years for some much needed ‘puffin therapy’, are a pretty irregular visitor to our unique West Coast archipelago, or haven’t even yet experienced what lies on your maritime doorstep – be sure to pay us a visit this year.
Most folk are keen to have time to marvel at the unique geology of Staffa and the majesty of ‘cathedral like’ Fingal’s Cave. Puffins also nest on Staffa and it is possible to see both puffins and the Cave in the hour or so ashore here. If you are relatively fleet of foot you can also take in the views from the ‘trig point’ down to Iona, out to Coll and Tiree and back to Ben More, Ulva and Gometra. Until a couple of years ago the history of Staffa was thought to be relatively modern, but recently archaeologists working with the National Trust for Scotland who own the island have found artifacts dating back over three and a half thousand years. This work is ongoing.
Join us and relax with Puffin Therapy on the Treshnish Isles. Linger longer this year with our Staffa and Treshnish Isles day trip now allowing over two and a quarter hours ashore on Lunga giving more time to commune with the puffins and their many pals. For the even more dedicated – you could join us on ‘The Big Bird Trip’ which spends an entire afternoon of four whole hours on the island – an absolute must for both the dedicated bird watcher and those who just want a bit more time to relax or take their time and explore more extensively.
To receive The Mull Residents Discount give us a call on 01688400242/ 08000 858786 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
You will need to book direct with us as this offer is subject to availability and wont be found in our online system. You can of course take the chance of there being space on the day and just turn up! You may be asked to provide some form of proof you live here if we haven’t yet made your acquaintance. We have so far over the years only met most residents!
And of course we also see both resident species of seals on our trips – generally common seals inshore and Atlantic Grey Seals out in the Treshnish Isles.
