Golden eagles, red deer and otters inhabit this spectacular peninsula on the Isle of Mull.

Planning your visit

Burg is open all year round and can only be accessed on foot. It’s a remote and spectacular area of coastal countryside with no visitor facilities and a long walk in from the parking area.

The 5-mile path leading to the fossil tree is rough and sometimes steep – you should allow at least 6 hours to get there and back. Please ensure you’re well prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear (waterproofs and walking boots with ankle support) and plenty of food and drink.

Dogs must be kept under close control, especially around livestock. Dogs are unable to access the final part of the walk as it involves clambering down the side of a cliff on an iron ladder.

Burg paths have been filmed on Google Streetview Treks, where you can view the terrain in advance of your visit.
