Things To Do On Mull With A Dog
We know your dog likes to stretch its legs, explore new places and make wholesome memories with you, that’s why we’ve listed our favourite places and things to do on Mull with your dog.
Near Craignure lies Scallastle Forest, it’s the ideal forest romp for you and your furry friend. With awe-inspiring views over the Sound of Mull, a rocky rushing river and rolling hills to admire, your dog will love Scallastle.
Once a timber-producing forest where endless rows of conifers lay, now felled to allow native species including birch and oak to grow along the hills. With two trails to choose from, you can either follow the gentler trail to the Scallastle river, or tackle the steep loop uphill which affords gorgeous views across to the peak of Dun da Gaoithe. Please be careful on the tracks, you may come across some loose rocky areas when climbing.
Whether it’s a game of hide and seek, fetch, or simply exploring the trails together, you will lose track of time wandering through Scallastle Forest with your dog.
For a woodland adventure with your bestie, Aros Park is your best bet. Located a little outside Tobermory with great trails to explore, your dog will be truly exhausted after venturing through the winding paths. The Alainn View trail ends with a spectacular viewpoint, boasting views of the plunging Aros Burn waterfall. The Lochan Trail is a gentle walk which takes you around Lochan a Ghurrabian with a beautiful beach, along with impressive cypress and oak trees. And if your dog still has some energy left, you can also walk from Aros Park to Tobermory along the shoreline of Tobermory Bay.
Facing Coll and Tree on the north west of Mull, lies Calgary Bay, one of Mulls most beautiful sandy beaches – perfect for a dog to run free and stretch its legs! Whether your dog likes to dig in the sand, splash in the water, roll about or run up and down the dunes, you could easily spend 2-3 hours at Calgary Bay.
Once you’re all tired out, there is a converted boat hut that looks over the bay selling coffee, cakes and ice-creams to help you both refuel and hydrate before another sprint along the sand.
Tobermory Lighthouse Path
Another great dog trail is the walk from Tobermory to Tobermory Lighthouse. Just follow the coastline until you reach the impressive Rubha nan Gall Lighthouse which affords beautiful views back over the mainland and the harbour. Fresh air, quality time and exploring, what more could a dog owner wish for!?
