The Chatelaine's Scottish Castles

Kildonan Castle

Isle of Arran

Kildonan Castle, now in ruins, was used as the hunting seat of the Scottish Kings when Arran was a Crown property.

Offshore is the tiny island of Pladda around which you might see seals. On a clear day you can see Ailsa Craig - a mountainous island set in the sea. Alistair Hamilton who grew up here told me that the coast of Ireland (the Antrim Plateau) can be seen from Kildonan, as can Sanda Island off Kintyre, which is locally known as Spoon Island due to the fact that it looks like a spoon lying in the water.
