This map was taken from 'A Tour in Scotland' by Thomas Pennant. It shows the west coast of Mull, during the 18th century. The spelling of many of the place names has changed over time. 'Loch Tua' is now 'Loch Tuath' and 'Jona', is better-known as 'Iona'

Thomas Pennant was born in Wales in 1726. He visited Scotland, including the Western Isles, in the summer of 1772. His account of his travels is a fascinating record of the people and places he encountered on his travels. He was especially interested in antiquities, botany and zoology
