    Firstly, happy birthday a bit in advance! :smiley: Mull is a great place to be spending your birthday in.

    I have a non-birthday recommendation for you, there is a small shack in Fionnphort by the ferry terminal & it sells seafood sandwiches, pick one of those up if you're in the area. In my opinion, it is one of the best sandwiches I've ever had because the seafood is so fresh. There is apparently a fancy seafood restaurant there as well & I can bet it'll be good if the nearby sandwich shops access to fresh catch is anything to go by. Mussels are a Mull speciality.

    Other Mull food items I like are the Island Bakery Chocolate Gingers & Tobermory distillery whisky. If you're in Mull by chance on a weekend that holds the monthly Farmers market, you'll get some hand on some great produce. (I was very luckily on the island a couple of summers back for that, loved the Pistachio Biscotti baked by the local bus driver & his wife)

    The thing to try fresh on the west coast.

    Very much in vougue as an export from Scotland to  Mediterranean Europe  we are just starting to appreciate it here at home.
    Not sure where you are travelling from, but if you are as far north as Ullapool  (perhaps as part of your journey to or from Lewis and Harris) if doing an island hopscotch I had some great Langoustine in the Arch Inn, Ullapool

    "The" place to eat on Mull is Café Fish.  Having said that, I am not sure they will be open for the season when you visit.  Good luck and happy birthday.

    I second both the shack in Fionnport and Cafe Fish in Tobermory.
