Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This easy and secluded short walk visits the remains of a seventeenth century castle with a grim story to tell. It stands in a lovely spot on the Loch Snizort coastline.


Good track for most of the distance; final few hundred metres are through pathless grassy pasture - can be wet after rains when the grass is high.
