The Mull & Iona Food Trail has been developed to showcase the delicious island produce available on Mull, Iona and neighbouring islands, Ulva, Gometra and Erraid; to encourage visitors and residents to enjoy food that is grown, caught and produced here.
These beautiful islands have a rich heritage of Hebridean hospitality centered around a warm welcome and generous offerings of home produced food – whether it was lamb from the croft, fish freshly caught from the sea, or delicious home baking – going back to a time before supermarkets and online shopping.
The clear waters surrounding us produce wonderful shellfish, whilst the extensive hill farming and crofting methods produce tender well hung island meats produced locally. Scenic gardens grow wonderful fresh vegetables and fruits, whilst kitchens, big and small, create a grand selection of edible delights.
Watch out for the occasional ‘pop-up’ shop at someone’s roadend, or look for the smaller producers at the Markets held regularly around the island over the summer.
