ROUND MULL SAIL
7th – 14th September 2019
A 7 day Wild Journey
Over seven days we will complete a circumnavigation of the Isle of Mull. We’ll spend a lot of time sailing but there will also be plenty of time for just being, for eating well, for swimming, for walking and for campfires.
The Mull coastline provides some of the best sailing in the country as well as fantastic wildlife and many uninhabited small islands. ‘Solo’ takes place on one of these islands where we spend 24 hours in complete solitude. No books, no phones, no fires… no distraction. Just sitting & being. Solo isn’t about survival – it’s much more about finding a space where we are sitting comfortably with ourselves.
The knowledge and love that Neil and the team has for the land and landscape was clear from the start… it was very special to share that with a group of strangers who very quickly became friends. It all unfolded completely naturally and one of the greatest joys of the course was being able to be truly in the moment, something that is so hard to achieve in everyday life.

We’ll sail aboard Birthe Marie. A strongly built ex working boat with a gaff ketch rig, the feel aboard is that of a clean workboat rather than a ‘yacht’. Her hull shape is particular to the Scandinavian fishing boats; all curves. You don’t need any sailing experience at all to take part in this course. It is however a ‘hands on’ course and by the time you’ve finished you will have learnt a lot about sailing this particular boat. Nights are spent ashore camped in some of Scotland’s most beautiful and uninhabited wild places.
Whilst wildlife isn’t guaranteed previous trips have encountered whales, dolphins, porpoise, eagles and adders.
We pride ourselves on delivering a high quality mix of the finest facilitation combined with activity and place that push limits. We’re not a boot camp but all our journeys deliver elements of hard.
