Much of the population lives in Tobermory, the only burgh on the island until 1973, and its capital.Tobermory is also home to Mull's only single malt Scotch whisky distillery: Tobermory distillery (formerly Ledaig).HistoryEarly historyIt is widely believed that Mull was inhabited from shortly after the end of the last Ice Age, around 6000 BC. Bronze Age inhabitants built menhirs, brochs and a stone circle with examples of burial cairns, cists, standing stones, pottery and knife blades provide compelling evidence.Between 600 BC and AD 400, Iron Age inhabitants were building protective forts, duns and crannogs.
