Castle Tioram, Moidart

We've really been enjoying getting to know this area.  Moidart and it's surrounds are full of hidden gems.  Castle Tioram is one of them.  I apologise for the many castle photos but we were blown away at the grandeur of the place even it its ruinous state.  When the weather started looking a bit iffy we decided to drive out to Ardnamurchan Point in the hope it would clear over and we'd get a nice sunset.  It was not to be but still a nice place to sit.


  1. We went there last year with my mum, lovely ruins and stunning location.

  2. Otters! Amazed you didn't see any from the hide. They play on the roadside grass at Poolewe, Skye is good and the closest I've seen them were three playing together in shoreline weed lees than 10 metres from my sea kayak on Harris. Loverly critters! Castle Tioram looks well worth a visit, nice pix!

  3. your blog has been quiet for a long while - are you OK?

  4. I'm doing fine thanks Chris. Just life and laziness preventing me from updating the blog. I really should get the finger out and get some stuff written up as we have had some cracking trips recently.

    I've even been so lazy as to not even look at others blogs so apologies to all you other bloggers for that

    Hope all is well with you Chris and you're making the most of this poor excuse of a summer

  5. Hi there !

    I was there a few years ago and it wasn't possible to get inside the castle...but as I see your pics, th entrence is now open ?
    Please let me know as if we're going to Scotland again this year in september...

    Many regards,

    Roy from the netherlands

  6. Hi Roy,

    Sorry for the late reply. I hope you see this before you head to Scotland. Officially Castle Tioram is closed off. We chose to ignore the warning signs and go explore but kept away from anything that looked loose. There have been a few storms since we were there so who knows what damage has happened to it since then.

    It is a gorgeous location and would love to see it restored to its former glory but suspect that will never happen.

    Hope you enjoy your visit.

  7. Stunning photos! Thanks for sharing all of them. The remains of the castle is a piece of history left between the covers of the book. You are so lucky to have seen this place and walked all over the area before it marries the earth from which it has come from.
