Port nan Gael – The Heart of the Wilderness

Wildlife

Sea

Venture along the shore and discover hidden coves and rockpools teeming with life. Keep your eyes peeled for otters and dolphins that are frequently seen in the bay. Loch Scridain is a sheltered sea loch, flowing in from the Atlantic coastline of Mull.

Land

Wind your way through the spectacular glen en route to the site. The Ross of Mull has plentiful farms with sheep, highland cows and horses. Depending on the time of year you will see Red Deer wandering the hills.

AIR

Port nan Gael is a popular base for birdwatching. Capture the UKs largest bird of prey, the white tailed eagle in full flight. Herons, oyster catchers and buzzards are also frequent visitors to the area. If you are visiting in the summer months be sure to make the journey to Lunga and see the treasured and highly popular Puffins.

Walks

Mountain

Ben More is the only munro on a Scottish island. Access is from the West of the island but view the summit directly from the campsite. This journey can take up to 5 hours in total so be sure to clear a whole day for it. The weather can change quickly so embrace the elements but plan ahead.

Beaches

The spectacular white beaches in the south of Mull are not to be missed. Each involves its own unique journey; but remember to leave nothing behind but footprints. Ardalanish, Scoor and Kilvickeon are just a few to be explored. There are also several sea caves but be sure to keep an eye on the tides.

Forest

Community forests nearby include Tiroran and Ardura. They are well suited to dog walkers and picnic lovers in all-weather. A nearby favourite of experienced walkers is the Fossil Tree of Burg. This expedition is not for the faint hearted, but the results are spectacularly worthwhile.

Wonders

Carsaig

The breathtaking Carsaig arches are not to be missed. This journey has photo opportunities along the way from the phone box under the waterfall to the views over the Atlantic

Tiroran

The township of Burg has a significant history as a main focal point of the island, and you can still walk through the remains of its ancient villages. This location will suit geologists, historians and anyone with an imagination.

Staffa

Make the journey several ways to see the spectacular island of Staffa. For folklore lovers the story of the cave and its connections to Ireland are well worth exploring. The boat trip, the visit to Lunga and the Puffins are all part of this unmissable adventure.
