What's the story in Tobermory?

A June 2002 trip to Isle of Mull by miss_vixen

Quote: Tobermory is the picturesque main town on the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. The multi-coloured houses lining the harbour are a world-famous landmark. The title for this journal comes from the children's TV show Balamory, which is filmed in the town.

What's the story in Tobermory?

Overview

Quote:
Mull is famous for its rich diversity of wildlife, from golden eagles to minke whales, so keep a lookout while you are there. The Mishnish hotel (in the yellow building) often has live traditional music in the evenings, as well as a great bar. There are many small craft and art shops in Tobermory which sell some beautiful souvenirs.Quick Tips: Tobermory is popular with families, especially so since the TV show 'Balamory' started, but did you know?

It is popular with the large number of 'yachties' that visit Tobermory, and decorated with lots of sailing pictures and equipment. There is usually a live band, playing traditional Scottish music at the weekends, and in April it is one of the venues for the Isle of Mull music festival.
