Bringing History and Nature to Life


Argyll + Bute, Scotland, PA29 6UD

Explore the Castle

Check out the Gun Loops.....:-









.....and, on the Tower House, the Bartizan corner with corbelled support:-









Okay.  Here's the cunning plan.....!  In fact, it was created a few years ago, and we recommend using it in tandem with our latest map of the whole site.




See if you can spot this Hebridean mother with her lambs, in April and May.  They graze the Castle grounds in a sustainable way  -  and they'll pose for a photograph anytime!











Don't miss the floodlit Tower at night  -  spooky, but nice!!!












We want you to enjoy your visit to our Castle

So, please keep in mind the following:-

  • The Castle is a Scheduled Monument protected by Historic Environment Scotland (HES)
  • The public has a right of access but, in return, you're expected to comply with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and respect the structures  -  both visible and hidden 
  • A site such as the Castle is of great value, because just under the surface are the even more important parts  -  and there are lots of them  -  that haven't been seen for hundreds of years.  (Yes, it is a bit like an iceberg).  So it's important to look after the whole thing  -  even the grassy bits
  • Leave the site as you find it by:-
    • not removing anything from it
    • not lighting fires, camping or using metal detectors there
    • not interfering with, or entering, any archaeological excavations
  • Do take care  -  paths are uneven and slippery, and there are unprotected rapid changes in level and steep banks
  • Do make sure that children are safe, and keep dogs on the lead within the fenced Castle area
