Mull, an Anglicization of the Gaelic Maol, is a term for a rounded hill, summit, or mountain, bare of trees (it has also been used, in Gaelic, to refer to a forehead, or to a shaved head). As an adjective, the word is used to indicate something which is bare, dull, or bald. In Scotland, the term is most commonly found in use in the southwest of the country, where it is often applied to headlands or promontories, and, often more specifically, for the tip of that promontory or peninsula.
