On a sunny day this short walk must compete as one of the most beautiful in Britain. Cross on shining sand to the tidal island of Erraid, the setting Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped, and climb to the highest summit for stunning views to Iona and the many other islands. Check tide times first, walk is only possible at low tide.
Terrain - Tidal sands (check tides before setting out), muddy paths, steep climb to Cnoc Mor (optional)
Distance 6.5km (4 miles)
