Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom

There was also plenty of stuff on social history. In 1588, a ship sank off the bay, and the tresure hunt was still going on in the 1980s, though nothing has yet been found. There was lots of stuff on fishing, wartime Mull, aspects like education (the old school log books made interesting browsing), and for a whisky fan, the exhibit on illegal whisky distilling was especially interesting. This was largely due to problems when it became drunk for pleasure rather than medicinal purposes. Some things never change. Lots of info on the Tobermory distillery. Find out what man was like in 1608. Sorry guys, he makes modern man look like fairy godmothers. This place kept me for a few hours. There was plenty of additional reading material provided. The woman looking after the musuem was very friendly. When she found out I was here on my own, she invited me to Ulva the next day with her. I highly recommend this place.
