Whenever possible we like to find the locations used by Robert Louis Stevenson in his novels, particularly, Kidnapped. Visiting Mull gave us the opportunity to visit the Isle of Erraid which as noted, was visited by Stevenson, and also utilized in his novel, Kidnapped, as the island which caused the marooned David Balfour, such unnecessary anguish. We drove through the... More

A wonderful lady at the ferry port packed us a lobster supper with salads and crusty bread.Wine from the ferry shop and as we walked to this tidal Island made famous by R L Stevenson the sun cast long shadows on the sand.This was a fabulous end to our holiday on Mulll and will be remembered with great pleasure.

A really nice walk, about 6km in all. Some of it is steep and boggy but it is all interesting and beautiful. The view from the top of the hills in Erraid is unbelievable! Check the tide times before you get to Mull because internet and mobile is patchy there to say the least!

A lovely, easy walk but it can get quite hot walking across the white sands on a sunny day. Need to get the tides right so you can spend plenty of time on Erriad; make sure you climb to the top, the views are breathtaking.

An unusual walk over a tidal beach to a deserted island. A good walk for all ages with great beaches and wonderful views. It is easy to see how R.L.Stevenson gleaned many ideas from this exquisite place.

Lovely weather so saw the island at its best. Can imagine why R L S was inspired by it. The wonderful white sands and blue sea makes you feel you are in the Mediterranean .

Love walking over sand to tidal islands. Very wide expanse of sand (about 1 mile wide); distance between Mull and Erraid about 100 yards. Stunning with sea on both sides, and we were lucky to get sunshine too!

This a splendid walk for any age. You can just stroll from beach to beach (tide permitting), can choose from a short walk, or a longer walk to the main beautiful beach on Erraid (if you know the way). Taken youth groups there, and it was a hoot!

Walked across as soon as the tide allowed and wandered the island most of the day. Treagh Gheal (Balfour's Bay) was pristine and all ours - bliss.

Just a good safe anchorage, with only the sea and hill for company.
