Mull Genealogy - for those with family links with the island
1855 being the first year of Civil Registration in Scotland, the Registrar devised an over-elaborate form of record, which had to be abandoned the following year. With such a feast of facts in 1855, it is often of great value to have a sibling born, married or dead in 1855, as that will give you many insights about your own ancestor, and more information than you'd get in the ancestor's own death. These 1855 b,m & d records are often called 'extended records', and are a real godsend.


Meg Douglass
Lost Townships, Silent Voices: a field study of Mull comprises the notes made by Meg Douglass, a former Head Teacher at Ulva Primary School, and her late husband Roy. The meticulously catalogued labour of love took forty years to complete. During that time the couple walked many miles around the island, recording sites of ruins, taking photographs, noting measurements and analysing the use made of the buildings that remained.

The result is a comprehensive account of 160 deserted townships, together with map references, descriptions of locations and identification of various extant ruins.

Graham Ritchie, former Head of Archaeology at the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland and author of many books, has described the research as "a remarkable endeavour" and maintains that its publication lays "a further building block in the understanding of the history of Mull".

At the launch Eleanor Harris, Local Studies Librarian for Argyll and Bute Council, said, "I am delighted that we have been able to publish this book. It is the culmination of a lifetime’s study, brought to life with photographs and maps, and now accessible to the public." It is already proving popular with historians and local people alike, and copies have been requested from as far afield as Canada and Australia.

Scotland the Movie - Mull
Part of the appeal of movies filmed in Scotland is the spectacular scenery of mountains and lochs seen in the background and in some cases center stage of many movies. Leading to the perennial question: "where was that scene filmed?"
Scotland the Movie Location Guide seeks to answer that question. It is the most complete and detailed guide to Scottish filming locations available anywhere - either on the internet or in book format. It is fully illustrated with maps and many photographs to enable anyone to visit the filming locations either on the ground or on a virtual tour. You can look for movie locations either by name of the movie or via one of the many interactive location maps available.

Sea Eagles
The Isle of Mull is the best place in Scotland to see the white-tailed eagle, more commonly known as the sea eagle. It is Britain’s largest bird with a wing span in excess of 8 feet; its poetic Gaelic name is ‘Iolaire-suile-na grein’ which translates to ‘the eagle with the sunlit eye’. They are regularly seen in flight from public roads throughout the island.

To visit the Sea Eagle Viewing Point (a temporary hide available for guided visits between April & August) you will need to book your place which operates on a first come-first served basis of up to 20 people a session.

For further information contact 01688 302 038 or visit www.mict.co.uk and click on the Sea Eagle link from the main menu.
