Eilean Chaluim Chille, Cromor, South Lochs

Check the tide timetable before setting off on this otherwise straightforward short walk from Cromor at the furthest edge of remote South Lochs. The walk leads onto a tidal island to visit the ruins of a church founded in the ninth century, once the home of Columban monks.


Tracks, pebbly shore, tidal causeway then grassy track. The island is only accessible for a couple of hours either side of low tide.
