I hope you were able to find out about your husband's ancestry. There is a great deal of ancestry information on the website mullgenealogy.co.uk Failing that please send an email to familyresearch@mullmuseum.org.uk Thanks for your review.

When waking around Tobermory we came into the museum to look around. It is free to enter but they appreciate donations. They have interesting facts about the islands geology, history and wildlife. We spent about 30 min looking around. Worth a stop!

Entry is free , the local curator is helpful, and the collections of memorabilia and photos are fascinating and well explained and described. I will quite happily visit the museum again on my next visit to the island.
