Castle Tioram and the Silver Walk circuit

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The Silver Walk is one of the truly special paths of the Highlands, a fascinating route cut out of the rock through truly spectacular scenery. Add in stunning Castle Tioram, a deserted hamlet, pine-fringed hill lochs and a view out to the Isles, and you have a stone-cold classic half-day walk - surely one of Scotland's finest.


Silver Path coastal section is very rocky; one section is impassable at very high tides. The following section over the hill is rough and boggy.
