When we arrived it was rainy day. But as the rain passed there was a rainbow just above the castle! Absolutely breathtaking! It took a couple of minutes to walk from the car park to the castle and we meet highland cows ❣️. Castle was...More

When you park for Kilchurn Castle, it almost seems as you are trespassing as there is a company who is either building right there or keeps equipment right there. The Castle is right up our alley but due to heavy rains we could not access...More

This place offered great views over the Loch to the castle. Car parking is a bit awkward to find as at the time it was more like a builders yard. Loved looking around the old castle and learning about it, kids were also very interested...More

Parked at the side of the road and walked to take photo. Very boggy wellies recommended. Very iconic castle worth a quick visit

I drove past what looks like a dirt track before finding the way in. There is a small car park and a smaller sign to the castle down a path under a bridge round a corner and into a field full of midges. But in...More

I have been wanting to see this castle for years. I had to walk there and it was a joke but the pictures I took were definitely worth the trip.

This castle ruin is set with a classic backdrop and is a photographers dream. Probably as close to what you expect a Highlands castle ruin to look like. Probably not worth a diversion (unless you are really into castles) but if you are in the...More

As the landowner, I can advise that dogs are welcome but they MUST be on a lead at all times whilst on the land or in the castle !

Hi! The castle is closed which means you can't climb to the top of it, but don't let that stop you. You can walk round it and there are places you can see into the interior. It's still well worth a visit for its location... More
