This castle, now in ruins, is located 2 miles to the north of Kilmartin and about 28 miles south of Oban in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland.
There is a car park from where you can walk across the fields and go up the hill to the castle. Open all year. Admission is free.
There are no floors intact in the main hall but there are towers on each end which can be climbed.
This is a good example of a French Renaissance-influenced tower-house
with hall-house. It was built in 1565 by Bishop John Carswell (Rector of Kilmartin)
who published the first Gaelic translation of John Knox's Liturgy.
The castle was captured and demolished in 1685 by MacLaine of Torloisk
when its Campbell owner joined in the Monmouth Rising.
