Castle Tioram is a ruined castle that sits on the tidal island Eilean Tioram in Loch Moidart, Lochaber, Highland, Scotland. It is located west of Acharacle, approximately 80 km from Fort William. Though hidden from the sea, the castle controls access to Loch Shiel. It is also known to the locals as "Dorlin Castle".

Lairig ghru looking North to South
The Lairig Ghru (Gaelic Làirig Dhrù) is the most famous mountain pass in Scotland. ... Ghru is not a word that has an agreed translation to it, but Lairig means pass, and the pass of the Lairig Ghru takes the hiker traveling north to south over a historical route from Strathspey to Deeside.
Early Morning walk

Big smiles, knowing that they were on the downhill slope to completing their Gold Award.
