ARDALANISH BAY

 

SIMPLY MULL

SIMPLY MULL

Located to the south of Bunessan on the Ross of Mull, Ardalanish is fairly isolated but easily accessible by single-track road and a short easy walk.

 

There is a fine wide sandy beach, which is broken in places by isolated individual shiny black boulders and fringed by formations of sea-sculpted rocks.

 

Apart from being a very beautiful wide sandy beach, Ardalanish is a botanic stronghold for nearly three hundred species of wild flower.

 

The geological diversity of the bay means that it is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

 

Two standing stones (one now prone) can be seen 700m southeast of Ardalanish Farm and within 150m of the shore.

 

A visit here is always worthwhile at any time of the year. Isle of Mull Weavers overlooks the bay.
