Kilchurn Castle Loch Awe

Kilchurn Castle Loch Awe
Kilchurn Castle is a ruined 15th and 17th century structure on a rocky peninsula at the Northeastern end of Loch Awe, which is located in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.
The Castle was built in about 1450 by Sir Colin Campbell, first Lord of Glenorchy, as a five storey tower house with a courtyard defended by an outer wall.
By about 1500 an additional range and a hall had been added to the south side of the Castle.
Further buildings went up during the 16th and 17th centuries.
It is built on a small island scarcely larger than the Castle itself,
although it is now connected to the mainland as the water level was altered in 1817.
The Castle would have been accessed via an underwater or low lying causeway.
The location is stunning, and if you can brave the Midge, and the drive;
Its worth effort.

I love these clouds above the green mountains and the beautiful lake. The castle seems to be part of the whole always.
