5 Short Walks on Mull – part two
Today in my blog 5 Short Walks on Mull – part two, I am going to suggest another short walk, this time a very short one, to the Broch on Loch Tuath, Dun nan Gall. It is easy to drive past the broch and not know it is there. But it is definitely worth a visit, one of those relatively unexplored places.
From Treshnish drive towards Ulva Ferry. Pass Lip na Cloiche garden and drive on a further 1/2 mile to the quarry on the corner before the turning down to Kilbrennan Farm, you should be able to park there without blocking the passing place. There isn’t a ‘car park’.
Walk back down to the road towards Lip na Cloiche. There are 2 houses on the right hand side of the road, go through the deer gate near the second house, into the field on the sea side of the road. Walk across the field, closing the gate behind you, to the shore.
Dun nan Gall sits about 3m above sea level on a short promontory. Look for a mound of stone at the end of the promontory.
There is lots of information about it on the Mull Historical Society website.
