Day 263: Acharacle to Ardmolich – Loch Moidart Magic

4 comments
Argyllshire – North, Scotland

Castle Tioram III, Loch Moidart, Lochaber, Highland, Scotland.

I’m entering Moidart which marks the start of the Rough Bounds which is a notoriously inaccessible part of Scotland culminating in the wilderness of Knoydart. In addition to being steeply mountainous some of the roads were only built in 1966 with access prior to this being possible only by foot or by boat. Therefore it’s with surprise that I can follow a maintained path for a few miles called the Silver Walk which is cut into the steep lochside. Running from castle Tioram it’s a fun, adventurous path with devastating views back to the ruined castle over the mirror-like loch with mist swirling around the trees and rising mountains.

The Silver Walk by Loch Moidart in January, especially thrilling for me having inched my way through weeks of similar terrain without any path previously.

    • Thank you, yes it certainly was a day of the senses. There’s a lot to enjoy getting out in winter with especially all those russet colours. All would be vibrant green now.
