Reasons for trip

This is a lovely walk along the coast to the south east of Tobermory and is popular with dog walkers.

The walk starts from Ledaig car park on the southern edge of Tobermory. There are steps up from the far side of the Aquarium with information boards and a map.

It is a lovely coastal walk through mixed woodland above the Sound Of Mull with views across Calve Island to the Ardnamurchan peninsula. It is a well made path which is easy to follow and goes past Sput Dubh Waterfall where a stream tumbles down the hillside. Beyond here, there is a steep climb up the hillside to avoid an area of landslip.

When the path begins to drop again there is a picnic table, providing a welcome break. The path continues to drop steeply to a footbridge across the Aros Burn with another waterfall. Head for the small stone pier where you may be lucky enough to spot otters. This is about 2 miles. It is also possible to extend the walk around Lochan A Ghurrabain, which puts on another mile and a half.

The path can get muddy if there has been a lot of rain. The first part of the walk until it begins to climb steeply is easy walking for those with mobility issues. I chickened out when the path began to drop steeply down to the pier as I knew this would cause problems with my knees.

There are full details of the walk and a map “here.”:
