Garmony is a great place to admire the view or have a picnic. If you feel like some exercise, the coastal trail between here and Fishnish is an excellent way to explore Mull’s wild sea shore. The sharp, plaintive call of oystercatchers makes a perfect soundtrack to the scene, and if you’re lucky you may spot otters or porpoises.
Follow the low rocky shore of the Sound of Mull between Fishnish and Garmony. Great views of the Morvern peninsula and an opportunity to see oystercatchers on the rocks.
Uneven grassy and gravel surface, with some rough rocky and earthy sections. Some short steep slopes. Includes narrow sections of boardwalk and several muddy areas.
