Welcome to the website of Mull Historical & Archaeological Society

…which aims to provide an overview of the historical sites on the Isle of Mull and its neighbouring islands.

These historical sites can be found by clicking on the appropriate link above, such as Living’ or ‘Working’, which will then direct you to further links, for example ‘Castles & Fortifications’, ‘Settlements’, etc.  Under these headings are many more pages.  For example, within the Castles & Fortifications link you will find information about crannogs, brochs, duns and forts as well as castles – both ancient and modern.

We would like to have a comprehensive photo gallery and are adding images to the site on an on going basis.  We would welcome your images, please send them to:

Information about some of the projects we are involved in, such as the on-going work at Moy Castle, Lochbuie, and our ‘watching brief’ on the Macquarie Mausoleum at Gruline will be updated as appropriate.

You will find maps, suggested walks and this link, which enables you to become a member of the Society or to make donations to a project of particular interest to you, such as Moy Castle.

Whenever possible, we will try to link directly to other websites and sources of information.  We will also acknowledge material from other sources.  If there is a category that you would like us to include please email us at

Constructive Comments  about the website or its content can be sent to: and we will try to respond within a few days.  MH&AS is run entirely by volunteers and we all have many demands on our time, so please forgive us if there is any delay.  We hope you enjoy your visit.
