The Moa of Mull

Unlike the moai of Rapa Nui, which all turn their backs to the sea, the great moa of Mull faces resolutely towards the west and the open sea. This mimetolith can be found on the pink granite rocks on the coast of Eilean Dubh which lies to the west of Erraid.



  1. There is something powerful about that image. Maybe its the stone. Maybe its the mystery around its origins.

  2. Silbs, I did not get the angle quite right, when I first saw it it jumped right out of the rock at me! There is also a Mrs Moa nearby!!
