- The Ross
Traigh Gheal Beach is one of the most remote and beautiful on the Ross of Mull. It is quite challenging to reach as it is a walk of 3 miles through the Tireragan Reserve, with barely a path which is rough and boggy in parts. It is also one of the most rewarding walks through regenerating habitat of native woodland alive birds, butterflies and dragonflies. There are the options of detours to take in coastal views out to sea and visit an abandoned township. When Traigh Ghael beach appears suddenly through the forest, the sight is awesome with stretches of white shell sand edged with flowering machair, enclosed by high cliffs and a string of islets off shore. It is so remote, shorebirds nest on the beach and machair (so take care where you step, keep dogs on a lead and don’t approach too near). We are happy to provide information get the most out of this wonderful walk.
