MacCulloch's Fossil Tree

MacCulloch's Fossil Tree is a geological wonder at the western tip of the Ardmeanach Peninsula on Mull. The tree, which is thought to be 50 million years old, is 12 metres high, 1.5 metres in diameter and was discovered by John MacCulloch in 1819.

The walk to this stunning, remote spot is challenging. It involves climbing down a ladder attached to a cliff face, so it's no place for those with a fear of heights or dogs.
