The view of this 4-story castle intrigues all who drive the A828 between Oban and Ft. William. Situated on a tiny island, accessible only by boat (unless the tide is extremely low one can walk through mudflats to reach it--BUT--it is private). Tours, run by...More

Castle with a pretty setting. You can’t visit it however it’s very nice for pictures. If going that way I’d definitely stop and take a few.

Didn't get a chance to get to the castle itself, but it's stunning to see from land. Am planning on going back for this alone.
