Eilean Mhuireill



The crannog at Eilean Mhuireill is a good 1/2 mile walk and has a varied history. At some point it was used as prison by the MacDonald Clan.

It is 22m wide and covered in all sorts of vegetation. After taking a couple of zoom pics from the visitor centre I decided to hike down the eastern side of the loch. Nothing to difficult, a couple of streams to jump, couple of half decent climbs and good underfoot conditions.

I didn't see any signs of a causeway and I couldn't take any photographs as I'd left the camera sitting in the car.

There will be another day tho, there is a track which reaches a nearby fort. Penciled in for the next time.
