Toiram

By jeanie      
Tioram Castle (pronounced "Cheerum"), which is about 50 miles from Fort William.

The castle itself was destroyed in 1715 when the clan chief - Allan of Clanranald , ordered it to be burnt, as he feared that it may fall into enemy hands when he left the area to fight for the Jacobite cause. It has lain in various states of ruin ever since.

A beautiful, isolated location at the end of a long dead end single track road. You can only get to the castle itself by walking across a causeway when the tide is low enough.


1/4 secs @ F/22, ISO 100, 17mm focal length, circular polariser, tripod and holding back two dogs that want to go swimming : )

Well composed landscape with good foreground detail and tones.

ps. the word Tioram means "dry" hence the access at low tide.

Lovely job missus. Only ever been here once and I remember it being a very long single track road [with passing places] to the end and then it suddenly opens up to a beach with a couple of houses backing onto it??

Tried to get here a couple of years back but ended up taking the wrong turn off and ending up on the other side of the inlet at someones farm in the middle of nowhere - they looked at us strangely.

Anyway, nice composition, looks how I remembered it.

Thanks Leena, Paul, C, Kim, Chris, Neil and Ben.

Paul - yup you got it! I can understand why you took the wrong turning - easily done there. We also bought the most expensive fish and chips ever before the turnoff - and they were literally swimming in oil!
LOL re the locals giving you the hard stare!

Hi Jeanie, This is really good. I like those shots where the subject matter, in the photographer's eye, isn't the main detail in the shot. The foreground here looks great. Sounds like it was worth the trek.
