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

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
