Carsaig Arches

Landscapes & Nature See & Do


Carsaig Arches are natural arch cliff formations the result of the erosion of oolitic rock beds on the Ross of Mull in the south of the island of Mull.

Whilst you are walking look out for goats, eagles and, in spring, nesting kittiwakes and fulmars.

This is a good but hard walk from Carsaig Bay and involves about 6 km (each way) of walking. Most of the way you will follow a nice path below the cliffs that then takes you over some steep and rocky slopes.

The route from the first arch to the second arch is along a goat track with vertical drops and so most people just settle with the first.
