Know Before You Go
To explore the island it is essential you check tide times with the local tourist board in Campbeltown. The start of the causeway is about a 40-minute walk from Campbeltown, or you can park your car nearby. It takes about an hour to walk the shingle causeway and skirt around the island to the cave, plus an hour to return. Sturdy shoes are needed as the island is rocky with a pebble beach. It is definitely not suitable for anyone with a mobility issue.
