It is well worth visiting Castle (Caisteal) Tioram, even though you can't enter the building for safety reasons. You can still look around the castle, & there are some great views.

The castle sits on Eilean Tioram, which is a tidal island in Loch Moidart (a sea loch). Ten minutes before I took my Profile photo there was only exposed sand. Ten minutes after my Profile photo and the tide had come in fully (see photo below). You'd either have to wait it out or swim for it!

@fitheach One of my favourite places. 😃

Here is another view, taken while leading a group on the Shiel Circuit in June 16. We had absolutely glorious weather that week:


Ooh, that does look like a nice day. Your photo is on the exact opposite side.

@wizardofosmium was just talking about paddling around the island.

@fitheach @wizardofosmium - about a week or 10 days after this picture I was in the far north of Ontario getting eaten alive by almost everything with teeth...

@fitheach @wizardofosmium - Blackfly, Horsefly, sandfly, Mossie's mostly...

Bears and Wolf are a bit more shy generally..!

@fitheach @wizardofosmium - Ha, no. You need to have a good kitchen and hygiene system when on a canoe trip where bears are concerned.

Just Black Bear in the east, & they're not so bad. Further north is the Barren ground Grizzlie - they can be trouble & on some of the far north rivers that empty into Hudsons Bay you may see Polar Bear...

My 'bear' count on trips over the last years is less than 10. My 'wolf' count is 1. My 'Moose' count is less than 10.

Lost count of the wee bitey things...
