The Mull Head circuit was included in both of the Orkney walk books available in our holiday house. We parked near the Visitor Centre but didn't go there as we have been before. The first stop is the Gloup (which we had first seen over...More
I love all the rock formations on Mull Head - fossilised lake bed and rippled sand. The Gloup at the beginning of the walk is spectacular though a little scary but the cliff top stroll is beautiful in dry weather. It’s worth the climb up...More
