Low Level Trails
You don't have to climb the highest hills to have a great day out! Mull offers a multitude of fantastic low level, moorland or coastal walks to suit everyone's interests.
Headland offer you guided walks to help you safely navigate the hills and the bogs and access the hidden gems of beaches, woodlands, meadows and viewpoints that the island has to offer.
We have in-depth knowledge of the Isle of Mull and the west coast of Scotland and can design a walk that would suit you. Please have a look below at some of our favourite low level walks on Mull. If you have your own ideas, or want to hear some more options, just get in touch!

Shiaba and Scoor
Tireragan is a woodland regeneration project meaning that it is fenced off from deer, sheep and cattle allowing trees and other plants to grow unhindered.
A tidal island just off the south-western tip of Mull. It was the inspiration to Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Kidnapped.
A narrow path takes you through a beautiful and diverse natural environment, past an old ruined village, and drops you off at one of the island's most beautiful beaches.
The most interesting route takes you past the old quarrymans cottages, the quarry itself, the light house observatory and a seal colony. The walk ends up on the beach at Balfours bay, named after the main character in Stevenson's Kidnapped.
Shiaba is a large clearance village on the south coast of the Ross of Mull.
In addition to taking you to the ruined village, this walk takes you past several small sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs. And a pretty neat cave!
Suitable for half a day walk, or a full day with more time on the beach, for lunch and some more exploring.
Perfect for a half day walk.
Could be done in half a day if you are feeling fit. But might be nicer done a bit slower to allow plenty of time to explore.
