This is maybe the best situated composting loo in Scotland. Enjoy the bluebells in spring, a wander in the woods or a dip in the Sound of Mull after taking your comfort break. The loo is situated mid way around the walk with circumnavigates Achnaha Community Woodlands, so maybe not so handy if you are in a rush on your way between Lochaline and Drimnin, but if you have time the walk is just magical in late spring with bluebells carpeting the woods and you are guaranteed a memorable wee stop-off.
