Season: summer

The sandy beach next to the slipway is a fine spot to anticipate a trip across to the Abbey and the beaches on Iona.  As well as being the ferry access point from Mull to Iona, you can take a boat trip to Staffa from here.  There is history too, with the now disused quarry over the hill a worthwhile short hike and a shop, cafe and restaurant all to hand.  So although Fionnphort is generally a place to leave from, it’s no hardship to stay a while and enjoy the views.

One thought on “Fionnphort beach

  1. Carla

    Sanctuary. The sanctuary between sky and water, and I the pivot. The edge that the seesaw balances on: the world of life and food beyond the shore. A rugged Scottish fisherman hauling his creels by hand. One small beach, white, Hebridean, and all of us dancing through the sour salt and sea of it.
