Local Walks – Burg and the Wilderness
Being situated in the centre of the island, Kilfinichen is an ideal location from which to undertake one of the many wonderful walks or drives around the island.
The walk to the end of the peninsular will take you back in time from the modern quality and convenience of your accommodation, past the ruins of the houses of families that emigrated in the 19th Century, and to Tavool House, the home to the Roses Trust (www.hebrideanpursuits.com) then past the Dun at Burg which dates from the middle of the second millennium BC, before finally bringing you to MacCulloch’s tree which dates back some 50 million years. During this time you will have the opportunity to witness some of the most magnificent and dramatic scenery the Hebrides has to offer and see a vast and rich variety of wildlife from wild goats to otters.
There are many guided tours of Mull and a selection are available on the Holiday Mull website (www.holidaymull.co.uk).
