Kilchurn Castle, Scotland

Standing on a rocky peninsula at the northeastern end of Loch Awe are the ruins of Kilchurn Castle. Seen here from the “panorama viewpoint” off the A819 road to the south of the Loch. It was an overcast day but the sun did come out for this photograph. You can see the tower house battlements and the jetty from this angle. Built in the mid-15th century for the Campbells of Glenorchy. It fell out of use and was in ruins by 1770.
