Be­side the sound

AROS PARK TO TOBERMORY AND LIGHT­HOUSE, Mull, Scot­land

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

Aros Park, to the south of Tobermory, is a quiet, wooded, mossy hill­side, with a num­ber of paths that wind around a lake, down to an old har­bour, and above and be­low a thun­der­ing wa­ter­fall that pours down from the is­land’s boggy in­te­rior. Through the trees are glimpses across the Sound of Mull to the dra­matic pur­ple crags and moun­tains of Ard­na­mur­chan on the main­land, much more re­mote than Mull it­self. As you round the coast the views of Tobermory ( pic­tured above), are idyl­lic, with its brightly painted houses along the wa­ter­front, and fishing boats and yachts in the bay. Stop in the town for chips on the quay or cake in the bak­ery, and then carry on north along the coast to the light­house, be­fore re­turn­ing over the golf course.
