The Silver Walk to Castle Tioram, near Kinlochmoidart

Follow this fantastic ancient path as it weaves along the rugged shoreline of Loch Moidart, climbing steeply in places, to reach Castle Tioram, spectacularly sited on a small rocky island. The times and distances given for this linear route are for both directions but you could also get picked up at Diorlin.


Rough walk with rocky steps, short boggy sections. One shoreline section can be impassable at highest tide. At times the path runs along the edge of vertical drops - care needed with children and dogs.
