On an Island I - Castle Tioram, Loch Moidart, Doirlinn, Moidart

In the lead up to last night’s only full supermoon of 2017, which occurs when the moon is at its closest point to the earth, high tide has been unusually high. This has meant that, for a few hours each day, the tide has been high enough to completely surround Eilean Tioram (the Dry Island), cutting off Castle Tioram from the mainland. Here you can see it after sundown, standing proud against the dusky sky.
