Off the beaten track

Something more active

For many, getting to know a new area means getting away from modern day roads and habitation and exploring the more inaccessible areas.  However, Mull is not unique in having too much choice when time is limited.  Particularly for those not accustomed to roaming areas new to them or not used to finding there own way, the answer is to go with someone who can take the lead and help you to focus on the better areas to go.

Michael, your guide, trained as a teacher of Outdoor Education and worked professionally through schools and outdoor centres providing a wide range of opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.  Before 'retiring' to Mull he was director of a specialist outdoor pursuits centre.  He has the skills and and knowledge to help you explore the wilder parts of this island.

Whether it is exploring the stunning coastline, experiencing the unique geology or experiencing some of the many historical remains of this stunning area, we can plan an itinerary that suits your ability and interest.

Suited to most

Visitors to Mull very quickly realise that the terrain away from the road can be very wet and rugged.  With few paths you will need a certain degree of physical ability.  However, walks are planned to meet the needs of guests and so as long as you have a reasonable fitness, are used to walking in the countryside, we can plan something that suits.

Most walks will cover between 6 and 8 miles and taken at a pace to enable you to enjoy it to its full, with plenty of stops to enjoy the views and the wildlife.  For the more active, longer walks, can also be made but we speciallise in offering opportunities to those who are not used to experiencing remote country for themselves.

You will need to bring your own suitable footwear, walking boots, waterproofs and a small rucksack to carry personal belongings. The weather can be very variable at any time of year so you need to make sure you will be warm and dry to enjoy the day at its best.  We will provide a packed lunch but you may also like to bring a flask with your preferred choice of drink.  There will be plenty of opportunities for photography so bring your camera.  If you want to borrow binoculars we have those available.  Walking poles/sticks are invaluable, if only for checking your footing in wet areas!
