Dun Ara and Glengorm Castle, near Tobermory

This out-and-back walk leads from the splendid Glengorm Castle across the pastures to the site of an old fort at Dun Ara on the coast. There are wide sea views, with perhaps the opportunity to spot an otter or - for the brave - try a dip in the open sea 'bathing pool'.


Mostly a grassy track, wet underfoot in places. The final very short ascent to Dun Ara is steep and rocky.
