Saddle Bay, Castle and Abbey

Saddell has a small abbey with a fascinating exhibition of old carved stones. From here, there’s a lovely walk to Saddell Castle, which was built in 1500, and onto Saddle Bay, the stunning sweep of sand and rocks that was used in the video for Mull Of Kintyre, the song by Paul McCartney and Wings.

Saddell Bay looks out across the Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran. It’s a wild, remote and beautiful bay.
