Volcanic eruptions many millions of years ago formed this distinctive stepped outline of the peninsula, as the molten lava cooled to form the cliffs which can be seen today. Although the area is now almost devoid of trees, the sea cliff beyond Burg Farm retains the impression of a tree know as "MacCulloch's Fossil Tree," engulfed by the lava flow perhaps 50 million years ago.
Located at the western tip of the Ardmeanach peninsula on the island of Mull.
