WHERE TO FIND US
KILLIECHRONAN ESTATE ISLE OF MULL PA72 6JU
Killiechronan pony trekking
Killiechronan is situated in the centre of the island at the head of Loch na Keal, 3 miles from Salen.
From Tobermory take the A848 to Salen, from Craignure and the south of the island take the A849 to Salen, then turn at the church in Salen and take the B8035 towards Gruline, after 2.5 miles take the first right onto the B8073 towards Ulva Ferry. Killiechronan is then on your right after half a mile. If you miss us and drive past you will come to the campsite, in which case turn around there and come back a bit.
If coming from the west, Calgary, Torloisk or Ulva ferry then take the B8073 towards Salen, this is a very slow twisty road but also very scenic, it is worth doing for the scenery but be aware that it will take you up to an hour to do the 18 miles from Calgary. It is a lot quicker to go via Dervaig and through the glen to Salen.
From the south you can also take the scenic route around gribun on the B8035, this again is a slow and twisty route but well worth it for the views and must be done at some point during your visit, but make sure you allow extra time. It should only take you an hour from Bunessan or Fionnphort but it’s best to allow an hour and a half.
When you reach Killiechronan look out for the horses head sign, turn right up the track, as the holiday cottages come into sight you will see a track to your right, immediately to your right there is parking for 2 to 3 cars. If this is full then drive up to the holiday cottages and right into the yard, there should be plenty of space to park there.
To your left you will see 2 small sheds and the ponies tie up rail, this is where we are based. If there is no one around but the sheds are opened we are probably out on a trek.
