The small town of Tobermory lies at the north end of the Isle of Mull, and is the Island Capital, despite being at one end of the island. The town grew around the natural harbour, which is still a popular haven for yachts. In the past it was a important port for the steamer services that operated from Oban or even Glasgow. However, as the car ferries took over, so Tobermorys importance lessened, with Craignure becoming the main port for the island. In recent years, however, the ferry service across to Kilchoan on Ardnamurchan has become a year round service, connecting the small remote village to the shops and services on offer in Tobermory. It can also be an easier journey to Oban than the road journey to Fort William.

The main road to Tobermory is the A848, which arrives from the south, having started at the pier in Salen. Salen was also an important port for the steamer services, but is now just a small village. The onward route to Craignure and around the south of Mull is the A849. Heading west from Tobermory, the B8073 runs around the north of the island, via the very pretty village of Dervaig and the stunning Calgary Bay, before returning towards Salen. The B882 also forms a short link in the town, from the A848 near the pier up the hill to the B8073. In the past this route continued out to Calgary Bay. This was later upgraded to be the A848, before that route was curtailed to its original length, and the B8073 taking over the route between Calgary and Tobermory.
