This is another of the walks we completed during our stay at Mingarry Lodges in Scotland at the end of May.This is a great short walk. It starts at a car park near to Tioram Castle, follows the coast overlooking Loch Moidart, then rises to small lochans on the moors before descending back to the car park.
The Castle dominates the beginning and end of the walk. We completed the walk then wen to visit the castle.
It can be accessed at the beginning or end of the walk by a strand, but care should be taken as the castle can become cut off at higher tides. They will determine when you visit or whether you visit at all.
