My wife & I have a week booked at the beginning of September and have rented a cottage at Salen. Mull seems to have everything we would want - but for one thing. According to the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, there are no real ale outlets on the island. I well remember that, 20 or 30 years ago, Scotland was a real ale desert but things have got massivly better in recent years with micro breweries around every corner. But, perhaps, not on Mull?
