The Fossil Tree and the Burg

MacCulloch's Fossil Tree is a geological wonder at the western tip of the Ardmeanach Peninsula. The walk to it is both remote and challenging - and no place for those with a fear of heights. It is set amidst stunning coastal scenery. The final section on the shore is tidal - check the tide times before setting out and try to reach this section whilst the tide is still receding.

Terrain

Good track to the Burg, then narrow but clear path, becoming increasingly exposed, including descent of ladder. Rough walking on tidal rocky shore.
