This small village is located adjacent to the A849 Craignure to Fionnphort road on the shores of Loch Scridain on the Ross of Mull.
The River Leidle runs north along Glen Leidle in the south to emerge at Pennyghael from under a small hump backed bridge. Just west of Pennyghael is an unclassified road that follows Glen Leidle south to Carsaig Bay.
The waters of Loch Scridain run north of the road from Loch Beg at the foot of Glen More and are full of wildlife including birds, seals and otters.
The rocky shoals of Eilean an Fheòir just west of Pennyghael have a large colony of resident seals with otters often seen both east and west of the village of Pennyghael.
Whilst there are no public toilets at Pennyghael, a small café is often available just over the bridge in the summer months with tables on the northern verge overlooking the loch.
If you are visiting Carsaig and have a larger vehicle, the road is very narrow and steep in places with limited passing places and almost no proper parking at Carsaig itself. Even turning a vehicle can sometimes be difficult at the end of the road.
