Loch Awe, Dalmally, Argyll and Bute, PA33 1AF

Route Overview: 44min, 18.3miles

Kilchurn castle is an absolute must see while you stay in the area. 

Built in 1450 by Sir Colin Campbell, first Lord of Glenorchy, the beautiful remains of the castle stand on the North end of Loch Awe, only a 44minute drive from the cottage.

To get beautiful views of the castle from the roadside, look out for lay-bys on the A819, where you will see the castle on the left hand side. 

The castle remains have been built up in areas with wooden flooring so that you can reach the topmost areas for beautiful views out over the loch and surrounding areas.

The walk up the the castle is flat but gravelly.  

 A great visit for adults and children alike.

 There are no facilities such as tiolets or cafes but nearby  are the villages of Loch Awe and Dalmally.

 The ruin is currently in the care of Historic Scotland.
 If you enjoy this, you will also enjoy Carnassarie Castle.
