From the rugged battlements of this strategically sited castle you can see how it once dominated Loch Etvie. Outside the ramparts lie a ruined chapel, well – kept grounds and pebbly beaches with views to Mull, Lismore and Morvern.

Built by Duncan MacDougall in the 1200s, the castle was captured by Robert the Bruce in 1309. Flora MacDonald was imprisioned here after helping Bonnie Prince Charlie escape Scotland.
