Cracking location on far NW corner of Mull. VEry wet and blustery but good views of Tiree and Treshnish Isles. Coll mainly elusive in the mist.

North West point of the Isle of Mull. Easy walk from the end of the road. Brilliant views all round with really clear air. Worth the effort.

Easy walk on close cropped grass from the road end. The road was in very poor condition. Views to Coll, Iona and the Treshnish Islands.

A couple of Great Skua nearby made this even more worthwhile...

Argyllshire. It is a twenty minutes each way pleasant stroll from the end of the road. There were views to the Treshnish Isles, Coll, Rum, Eigg, Muck and the Ardnamurchan peninsula. Plug missing.
