Visited Kerrera Island during our recent stay in Scotland and walked the south side in a clockwise direction.
We had to wait a long time for the ferry as we'd missed the first ferry and next one wasn't until 10.30. But once on board we were soon over on the island, first port of call was the very useful and excellent composer toilet, what a fantastic idea and well done to the islanders for arranging these facilities, I hope they get enough donations to keep them open.
We walked the south side in a clockwise direction! A big mistake as we later found, this direction leaves you climbing lots of hills when you're flagging and just want to lie down and rest.
However, it was a great walk with fantastic scenery and some great views, unfortunately the only wildlife we saw was one rabbit and the wild goats. We heard the parrots at the sanctuary but it wasn't open on the day we visited. The extra half mile to Gylen Castle is worth the effort, there is another composter toilet here, very convenient. We also visited the tea rooms for tea and cake , which was excellent. The tea rooms also have toilet facilities for customers, these were a little odd having a porthole window making you feel a little conspicious looking out at people walking past whilst you washed your hands.
The rest of the walk was equally as scenic but tiring due to the previously mentioned steep climbs. We didn't manage to find some of the points of interest, such as the children's graves as it was unclear from our brochure where to find them.
I would recommend this walk for the energetic, probably not suitable for elderly / infirm or small children.
