We followed the route in an excellent little Walks book for Mull and Iona, written by Paul & Helen Webster. It had been reasonably dry for the last week, even so there were places where waterproof boots were desirable. The walk is along the beach to get there, and along the cliff top on the way back. The entrance to the gulley where the fossils are found needs a bit of clambering down. The area where a trained eye could find fossil leaves is halfway to the sea. We didn't find any there that we were very sure of, but there is evidence of much searching. We carried on to the sea which was much more rewarding. There are basalt columns at all angles and a miniature Fingal's cave. We also found a large pebble which looks like a leaf fossil, but can't be sure. Avoid high tides if you want to explore the cave. Have a look over the cliff on the way back to see the extent of the buildings that once used to be there on the beach.
