Three jewels of Loch Sunart: Oronsay, Loch Teacuis and a buried diamond!
shells of long abandoned cottages looked down on us from a high ridge.
Glen Borrowdale Castle. Borrowdale was a Viking who settled here and built a castle to protect his new lands. The current castle was built in 1902 by Charles Rudd, a diamond mine owner. Reputedly, before he died, he buried a large diamond somewhere in the grounds !
between Carna and the Morvern mainland. This led us through into a beautiful hidden loch, Loch Teacuis, which bites deep into the Morvern peninsula.
Inverness Canoe Club, who were out on a day paddle from the Resipole camp site on the shore of Loch Sunart.
