Sea and golden eagles, otters, deer and a range of sea creatures including seals, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks plus the birds and animals of the mountains are all accessible on walks both on the islands of Kerrera and Mull and around the town of Oban.
An excellent walk is a circuit of the south end of Kerrera clockwise along the coast. Scenically beautiful, you'll find a lot of historical and geological interest. The sheltered Sound of Kerrera gives way to more open views south towards the islands of Seil and Scarba, followed in turn by the sudden appearance of Gylen Castle, with its prominent silhouette backed by the hills of Mull across the wide Firth of Lorn.
Turning north gives yet more new views towards the Isle of Lismore and the hills beyond lining the long, straight rift where Loch Linnhe leads towards the distant Great Glen.
There are a number of low level walks from the town of Oban offering views over Oban Bay towards Mull. The Caledonian Forest Park Reserve covers much of the Lorn area to the east of Oban and there a number of enjoyable way-marked walks throughout. The famous Isle of Mull also offers a number of forest and coastal areas to attract the walker.
