    I'm hoping to go to Loch Morar soon and I'd like to take my hammock with me.

    Apart from the islands, are there many places to actually hang a hammock, or would I be better off taking my tent?


    Cheers, Michael.

    Plenty of hammock opportunity there. If you are on the water though it can be pretty mental when the wind picks up. What a place though, it's definately on my 'must go back there' list :)

    I travel past the Loch frequently and I've never thought there was much hammocking opportunities but I hasten to add I haven't been up its full reach. The aerial view on the OS Map service suggests some to the west, it looks like a lot of plantation has been cut down. I understand you can walk across from Loch Morar to Loch Nevis having arranged a boat from Mallaig to pick you up.

    Yes I guess as I kayaked around from arisaig up loch Nevis and carted the boat over to morar I may well have been in the densely wooded area. I had a tent but had thought to myself a hammock would have been a god send on my last night at morar.
