What's the story?
Tobermory, with a population of approximately 700, is the largest village on the Isle of Mull in the Scottish Inner Hebrides.
Many of the buildings on Main Street, predominantly shops and restaurants, are painted in assorted bright colours, making it a popular location for television programmes, such as UK children's show Balamory.
Ferries sail between Tobermory and the mainland to Kilchoan on the peninsula of Ardnamurchan. But principal access to the island is via ferry between Oban and Craignure. Craignure is some 22 miles from Tobermory. This is the main route for visitors to the island
