The Mull of Oa is one of the most dramatic locations on Islay - the furthest point of the rugged, cliff-girt Oa peninsula. It is crowned by the 131m high American Monument, a moving memorial to the men who lost their lives in two shipwrecks off Islay in 1918. The route is waymarked and lies within an RSPB reserve.


Moorland and clifftop path, some boggy patches.
