Mull

Mull

Mull is the largest island of the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. There are several ancient castles, the principal being those of Duart and Aros. Close to the former is a lighthouse erected in memory of William Black, the novelist (d. 1898).

About midway between Mull and Lislnore is the Lady Rock, visible at low water, on which, in 1523, Lachlan Maclean of Duart exposed his wife, a daughter of the second earl of Argyll, expecting that she would be drowned by the flowing tide. She was, however, saved by her clans folk and her husband was afterwards slain by her brother. Joanna Baillie (1762-1851) made the incident the leading theme of her drama of The Family Lege.
