Take part in the Kerrera Experience for Macmillan. Enjoy the island and its stunning scenery and wildlife without time pressures.
This experience provides a fantastic family day out while raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support at the same time. Taking place on Sunday 16 June from 10am, the 6 mile walk takes about 3 hours at a steady pace with rest stops. There is a delightful cafe (with bunkhouse) about half way round close to the famous Gylen Castle.
From Kerrera ferry point the most popular route is that to the south taking in a short detour to Gylen Castle. This can be walked either clockwise or anti-clockwise and is roughly five miles in total. Allow at least three hours for the walk to give some time to relax and enjoy the views although you could return via the track taken at any time. It is one of the simplest and most enjoyable ways you and your family and friends can help to change the lives of people living with cancer. The OS land ranger Map 49 Oban and East Mull is the best to outline your route on Kerrera. There is also the Explorer 359.
