Transport from Mallaig to Castle Tioram

Hi folks
Can anyone help me with transportation from Mallaig to Castle Tioram? I have no problem walking a fair distance if it means no car rental.  It says it is located on Eilean Tioram where the waters of Loch Moidart and the river Sheil meet. I also want to stop at Arisaig and at a beautiful beach I saw in pictures but can't recall what it's called but it's in that area.  Thank you in advance.

    Hello @virginiamacd The closest public transport will get you is the village of Acharacle 3.5 miles away from the castle. The good news is that the journey is painless in theory 11:10 AM from Mallaig, a connection at Lochailort at 11:39 AM and reach at 12:09 PM. But you'll have to stay the night in the area as the next bus back is in the morning.

    Make sure that you're travelling between Tue - Fri on this route. Also, I believe the other place you want to see might be Morar between Arisaig & Mallaig and the bus (and trains) does have stops there.

    For bus timetable and contact info, go to the Shiel Buses website.
