Top Things to Do in Morvern

The Morvern Peninsula is commonly referred to as being anything south of Loch Sunart and Glen Tarbet, but that also include part of Ardgour as well as Drimnin, Rahoy, and Laudale.

The name Morvern is probably derived from the Gaelic A' Mhorbhairne, or the Sea-Gap. This may be a reference to the Sound of Mull which forms a gap between the 'mainland' and the isle of Mull itself.

Morvern is approximately 250 square miles (650 km2)

Walking

The highest point is the summit of the Corbett Creach Bheinn which reaches 853 metres (2,799 ft) in elevation.

Cycling

Canoeing and Kayaking

With well over 120 kilometres of coastline and a diversity of islands to explore you will not be left wanting! From open waters near the north of Mull to sheltered waters at the head of Loch Sunart or in Loch Aline, you'll find somewhere to paddle.

Finding somewhere to launch your canoe or kayak is a little more of an issue; mostly due to parking issues. Do contact the estates in advance if you plan on launching anywhere on their land. There is a jetty in Strontian that is free to use
