It is well worth visiting Castle (Caisteal) Tioram, even though you can't enter the building for safety reasons. You can still look around the castle, & there are some great views.

The castle sits on Eilean Tioram, which is a tidal island in Loch Moidart (a sea loch). Ten minutes before I took my Profile photo there was only exposed sand. Ten minutes after my Profile photo and the tide had come in fully (see photo below). You'd either have to wait it out or swim for it!


@fitheach - this was the life for me until very recently. Full-time canoe Guide - mostly in France and Canada, but plenty of trips in Scotland too πŸ˜ƒ
I've done the trip from Glenfinnan - head of Loch Ailort quite a few times now - always with clients apart from one shorter trip with my nephew as far as Glenuig.

The coast from Shona to Glenuig can be very tricky in the wrong weather πŸ˜‰ But it is the most scenic section with the most adventure...
