  • Carsaig Arches

    The Carsaig Arches are located on the south side of the Isle of Mull. From Carsaig Pier it takes around 6 hours to walk the 8-mile return route which is very difficult due to the boulder-strewn coastline that has no obvious path. Walking the coastline is worth every bit of the effort involved though, not only for the scenic views of Islay and Jura but also for the wildlife that can be seen in this remote part of the island.
