The Eye of the Needle

The Eye of the Needle is a spy thriller novel written by British author Ken Follett which was made into a film in 1981 starring Donald Sutherland, Christopher Cazanove and Kate Nelligan.

The film is set during the Second world War and tells the story of a German secret agent trying to get back to Germany, whose boat is wrecked on a remote Scottish Island.

Most of the filming on Mull was undertaken on the spectacular Treshnish Headland and around Loch na Keal. There is also some footage of Oban and Connel Bridge.

The Treshnish Headland is only accessible by foot, for details on guided walks in this area please click here.

There are also some lovely holiday cottages on the Treshnish Estate.
