Tormore pier and quarry circuit, Fionnphort

This is a great walk across a coastal headland to the hidden anchorage at Tormore where there is a white sandy beach. From here climb up through the pink granite quarry that supplied much of the stone for the abbey on Iona. Return across fields which can be very muddy at times.


Rough coastal path, flight of steps in quarry, stony track, path boggy in places.
