Mountain biking, sailing, pony trekking, getting gloriously lost on the island… there is far more to your island holiday than meets the eye.

Hill Walking

Benmore Estate is a walker’s dream, whatever your level of ability and confidence.  Most popular is the climb up Ben More, Mull’s only Munro, but equally Dun da Ghaoithe (2,513ft) at Torosay offers an excellent ridge walk with magnificent views.  The track along Loch Ba and equally the road which runs the length of Glen Forsa offers pleasant light walking.

Sailing & Kayaking

We have a number of sailing dinghies to enjoy and explore on the inland waters of Loch Ba, in addition to kayaks which can easily be transported further afield.

Other activities

Clay Pigeons

Using a Promatic trap we can offer our guests a range of informal disciplines, from learning the basics to having a simulated game competition with friends.

Mountain Biking

Explore Mull and it’s many tracks with one of our mountain or hybrid bikes. With a small selection to choose from they also provide an alternative method of exploring some of our neighbouring islands.


We are lucky to have three Golf Courses on Mull and Iona. From the undulating shore side ground at Craignure with their 9 tee and 9 hole course, to Tobermory and the panoramic views of Ardnamurchan and the Islands around their 9 hole course, and the magnificent stretch of Machair on Iona, where the greens on the 18 hole course are grazed by the local cattle and sheep.

Pony Trekking

Mull Pony Trekking is based just two miles away from us at Killiechronan and caters for all ages and abilities with their herd of sure footed native Highland Ponies.  There is a selection of beach and hill treks with spectacular views and extraordinary sightings of local wildlife. 

Tennis Court

If you’re feeling like a little fun competition, the tennis court in our beautiful walled garden at Knock House is the perfect setting for it, and certainly to give your party plenty to discuss over dinner that evening.

Whether you choose the rhythm of horseback, bicycle or walking to explore the island, everyone has a favourite way to enjoy the wonderful wildlife and views of the Isle of Mull.
