Port na Ba Beach

Port na Ba beach is an unspoilt white sandy beach on the north western coastline of Mull with views out to the Isle of Rum.

The beach translates to ‘Beach of the Cattle’ and this is because this is where cattle from Tiree and Coll swam ashore en route to the mainland markets.

No facilities and the closest village is Croig some 2km walk away.
