Dance Information

"Mull" (Scottish Gaelic: "Muile") is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides (after Skye), and lies off the west coast of Scotland in the council area of Argyll and Bute.

Mull is the fourth largest Scottish island and the fourth largest island surrounding Great Britain (excluding Ireland). Much of the population lives in Tobermory, the only burgh on the island until 1973, and its capital.
