Mull Beaches

Beaches

There is a one and a half-mile farm track from the cottages down to some of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland: Port Bheathain and Port-na-Sloachan. Both these stunning beaches offer sheltered areas for picnicking, rocky headlands and large expanses of sand at low tide. The water temperature is refreshing, although it gets better when the tide comes in over warm sand! The beaches are rarely visited and in a week you are likely to see only a couple of visitors walking along the coast. Seals can often be seen in the bays.

 

Kilvickeon Beach

Follow the road on the other side of the loch to the parking area next the Kilvickeon graveyard. Follow the track/path down to the beach that is wonderfully sheltered.
