Kilchurn Castle was the first thing we got to see once we landed, got our rental car, and started driving. It was so amazing there, it was silent and we were surrounded by beautiful snow covered hills. It was closed when we were there but...More

We spotted Kilchurn Castle from the road while driving by. As it was raining, we didn't take the 1/4 mile walk, but stopped for a couple of photos. Nice setting.

Sign said closed but went in anyway. Walk a quarter of a mile from the road, very muddy, wear boots or wellys. Not signposted from the road so easy to miss. Worth a look, great views.

Kilchurn Castle, or what is left of it at least, is perched on the very end of a loch surrounded by marshy wetlands with a decent approach on a somewhat raised path from the car park to the castle. The walk itself is very easy...More
