We walked from the boathouse, after coffee and cake, clockwise along the south coast and up to the livingston cottage, then back along the spine of the island. Varied walking territory, definitely boots. Saw an otter fishing in an inlet on the south coast whilst...More

A brilliant afternoon spent "navigating" muddy paths around the woodland and basalt columns walks (bring sturdy boots or wellies!). Spotted two sea eagles and had a close encounter with a golden eagle not long after leaving the ferry landing! We bought a lovely coffee to...More

Easy to get to be taking the ferry over. Pay for your return ticket at the Boathouse on the island. Once on the island, Sheila's cottage gives you some history of the Island and you get a map of walks to do ranging from 1-6...More

This is such a laid back unique island. Arrive by boat and greeted by a lovely little establishment called the Boathouse. Not a pub a restaurant nor a cafe but maybe a mix of everything with excellent food and a selection of drinks. From a...More

We travelled to Ulva to experience the food, the tranquillity and the walks - and we were not disappointed. All of the walks are clearly described in the very helpful handout and, although we only completed one, I've no reason to believe they aren't all...More

This is our second visit to Ulva, our first being some six years ago on an amazingly hot day (for April!). This time the weather was more characteristic of April but we were well prepared - Ulva is not somewhere to attempt to walk without...More

Having eaten in the Boathouse we went for a short walk - to the church and back via a circuit. Sad war memorial - 4 lives lost in such a tiny community must have represented most of the young men. Some lovely views. Some of...More
