Kilchurn Castle

 

Standing at the head of Loch Awe on what is today a low, rocky mound, but which, in medieval times, was an island, Kilchurn Castle was built, probably, around 1440 by Margaret, wife of Sir Colin Campbell, first Laird of Glenurquhay. Her husband was away at the time - he was a much travelled man, visiting Rome three times and made Knight of Rhodes to boot.

This original 5-storey keep, later extensively improved and extended, was to be well-tested in battle - for instance, enduring a siege by Royalists during the Civil War. Later, although by now already a partial ruin, it was used to garrison Hanoverian troops in the tumultuous days of the Jacobite Risings.

Subsequently, as the Breadalbanes looked increasingly towards Perthshire, it lost all domestic and military importance and even, in 1770, its roof as well! It is said that some of the slates and timbers were used locally - at Craig Lodge, for example, which was built as a hunting lodge.
