Castle of Romance [Scotland]
Photographer Kenny Baker Site [https://www.facebook.com/KENNY.W.BARKER] "Kilchurn Castle is one of the most romantic castle ruins in Scotland. Its picturesque setting on the shores of Loch Awe ensures gorgeous views of it in every season. Part of its charm lies in the difficult access to the castle."-Photographer "Kilchurn 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. Kilchurn was on a small island in Loch Awe 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."-Wikipedia
