Isle of Eriska circuit, near Benderloch

Eriska is a magical and secluded small island, the setting for a luxury hotel. This walk starts on the mainland and accesses the island via a bridge before making a rough but memorable circular walk around the island.


Mix of informal paths, very boggy in places, and very rough near the end though this part could be omitted.
