Isle of Mull

Abhainn Dhsseig (Ben More)

Location

There are several small watefalls and pools on the north-west side of Ben More. Park in the allocated parking on the side of the B8073 and follow the Abhainn Dhisseig to find them.

Features

Fantastically clear water and very refreshing after climbing Ben More. Good view over Loch Na Keal.

Hazards

No real hazards but these pools are far too small for a big swim.

Eas Fors

Location

On west side of Isle of Mull adjacent to Ulva. Plenty of parking on side of B8073 by the bridge which carries the stream. Walk back to SE for 100m and there is a place in the cliff that you can climb down.

Features

Excellent powerfull waterfall with good view of Ulva from the lower and upper pools.

Hazards

“Nice and refreshing swim” aka bl**dy cold! Other than the cold the climb down from the road is the biggest hazard!!!

Loch Ba

Location

On west side of Isle of Mull. Park on side of B8035 just before bridge by Knock Farm. Walk over bridge and take the track that runs to the south of the Loch. I went in in-between a floating fish farm and Rubha Gainmhich.

Features

Fantastic scenery all around you. Good clean and deep water.

Hazards

Suprising amount of vehicle movement along the track; perhaps they were trying to stop people swim!
