Mull holiday July Advice Please

Did this trip last year and it was great, air in Tobermory run by the harbour office and also in Lochaline at Lochaline dive centre run by Calum and Faith lovely people and very helpful, petrol is available at both Lochaline and Tobermory, diving in the sound is very easy with most of the wrecks buoyed, I will try and find you some co ordinates over the weekend.

I believe itís in the harbour office at the marina, thatís where the old one was but I understand itís been replaced this year and operated by the harbour office.
