Mull Coast to Coast - Killiechronan to Salen

Mull narrows in its central part to a slender neck, and only 4km separates the head of the sea-loch Loch na Keal from the Sound of Mull. This linear coast-to-coast walk thus crosses the island in the space of a short walk - though it is very wet underfoot in places. The walk requires either a drop-off at the start, a taxi ride for the return or doubling the distance by walking back - there is no public transport to the start.


Track then hill path; some sections are very boggy.

Public Transport

Salen is served by buses between Tobermory and Craignure, but there is no bus to the start of the walk.


Parking area just W of Killiechronan. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
