Tobermory, the capital of Mull, lies towards the northern end of the island. The bay is one of the safest anchorages in the Hebrides, indeed the original name for the distillery, Ledaig (pronounced Lea-chaig) is Gaelic, and means "safe haven". This made it the ideal place for a fishing town, which was built in 1788.


There is not a harbour in Britain to match Tobermory with its famous brightly painted buildings and lively atmosphere.


These days the main activities on the island are tourism, agriculture, forestry and of course, distilling.

The distillery is situated at the southern end of the harbour.
