Paddleboarding on Mull

Mull has fantastic coastal scenery with crystal clear water. Combined with the fine weather we had during our recent visit this produced some spectacular paddleboarding opportunities.

Sandend

A mixture of photos & videos taken around and about Sandend over several separate days. You can see why Sandend is a local surfers paradise. However picturesque, you wouldn’t catch me in the water there unless it was a good 25 degrees warmer.
