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.

Public Transport

None to start.
