May 18th saw us visit Knockvologan beach that is reached by turning off the the main road at the Fionnphort Ferry and heading past the car park and eventually a farm and campsite following the road round to another farm where there is space for a few cars. Follow the track past Knockvologan Farm where the path leads through vegetation and shrub before coming to the beaches. The weather today was overcast with a light drizzle in the air so not really good for photo's or hanging about on beaches but hey, we're on holiday so what the hell :-) A good look round the beach but we didn't make it across to ERRAID as we weren't sure of the tide times and didn't want to get stuck! We found out that the tide was coming in so a good decision in the end.

|The only eagle sighting here was when one came over the far ridge before heading back out of sight|

So two good walks on this great little Isle that offer different surroundings but both with a wild feel to them. If you ever visit the Isle of Mull, its worth checking them out.
