Castle Tioram Circular

Castle Tioram was the 14th Century stronghold of The Clanranalds.  Ruined since the 18th Century, this romantic castle, on the tidal island of Eilean Tioram,  serves as a testament to the changing fortunes of a Highland clan in Ardnamurchan and Moidart.  This lovely circular walk heads into the hills, past some isolated lochans to the deserted settlement of Briaig, before desending onto The Silver Walk which skirts around the coast of Loch Moidart.  Look out for otters, eagles and coastal birds along the walk. Take time to visit Castle Tioram, which is only accessible at  low tide or have a picnic by the beach at Dorlin.
