Thankfully I didn't read any of these reviews before doing the walk. I just wanted to see the arches, specially that one with a small chimney so yesterday evening with a beautiful weather we started the walk from Carsaig Bay. The path, when there's one,...More

The walk around from Carsaig to the Arches is a delight to anyone interest in geology, flora or fauna. The arches are impressive and the black sand of Carsaig bay is very interesting

Did this walk when staying on Mull- absolutely stunning coastal walk. Great views of Jura, Colonsay and Mainland. Be wary if climbing down to arches though as path eroded - can be dangerous - not necessary to do this though as the first arch is...More

This is a fairly long walk on uneven ground but the views out to sea and the geology in the cliffs are worth the visit and the arches are one of the most impressive coastal landforms in the UK.

My husband was of the opinion that this would be an easy walk because it followed the contour line on the map. He was this : completely wrong. The path was easy enough to find, unlike some footpaths in this part of the world, but...More

It's only four miles each way but you feel every little bit of it. The path (when there is one) is hard to keep track of especially when you have to resort to the shoreline because of landslips. You end up walking across wobbly, slippery...More
