This contemporary design & sculpture by Stuart Fellowes, was inspired by Celtic and Pictish carved rock art. It depicts an accurate topographical model of the Island of Mull
Mull (Scottish Gaelic: Muile) is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides. With a population of around 2,800. The island has a mountainous core; the highest peak on the island is Ben More, which reaches 3,169 ft.
Evidence shows there have been settlers on Mull since about 7,500 years ago. Later Iron Age inhabitants were building protective Forts, Duns and Crannogs.
St. Columba founded a monastery on the island of Iona in the 5th Century and brought Christianity to Mull. Vikings came in 795 when Iona was first raided. Norsemen became settlers on Mull. The Middle Ages saw the construction of Clan castles such as Moy and Duart. The original land holding Clans of Mull are Maclean, MacKinnon, Macquarie, and MacDonald. In 1788 Tobermory was built by the British Fisheries Society, as a planned town. Over the centuries Mull’s population increased to 10,638 in 1831 but first the Potato Famine and then the Clearances rapidly reduced this number. By the 20th Century much of the population had emigrated and there were more sheep on Mull than people.
Tourism is now the mainstay of the island's economy. There is also farming, aquaculture, fishing and forestry
