LAGGAN BAY

 

Lagga Bay and sands are located to the east of Lochbuie on the south coast of central Mull.

 

Accessed from the A849 Craignure to Fionnphort road at the Strathcoil turning, both Laggan and Lochbuie are at the end of a long single track road which runs alongside Loch Spelve and Loch Uisg before it divides at Moie Lodge, the right fork going on to Lochbuie and the left fork passing through the estate grounds and on to Laggan.

 

A word of caution here.

 

The road to Laggan is not for the faint hearted and certainly not suitable for motorised campers, caravans and larger vehicles. The first level section past the holiday cottages is not too bad but very bumpy and rutted. As it rises to climb the coastal section, it becomes an uneven rocky track with no room for vehicles to pass each other.

The biggest problem is that unless somebody walks on ahead to check, you cannot see if a vehicle is approaching from Laggan until it is too late to pass and very difficult to reverse.

That said, it is passable with care and well worth the effort.

 

Laggan Sands – Tràigh Bhàn Lagain – is a wide open beach of find sand overlooking Loch Buie with a backdrop of steep hills – Torr an Sgrithinn.

 

Located at the eastern end of the sands is Laggan Lodge, self-catering holiday accommodation.

 

Wildlife is abundant in the area and you may see the full range of Mull’s wildlife or at least some of them when you visit. We have seen Dolphins and Otters and Sea Eagles in Loch Buie Bay  and there no knowing what you might spot there.

 

Please look at Lochbuie and Croggan too for more information.
