Kilchurn Castle…

…is one of the three most-photographed medieval structures in all of Scotland. The others are Eilean Donan (maybe the most photographed castle in all of the UK), which we went by in the fall of 2012 on or way to the Isle of Skye, and Castle Stalker, which we… well, we missed it, even though we were standing on a vantage point about 100 yards away from where we would have seen it.
Kilchurn (it’s Scottish, so it’s pronounced “kil-hoon”)  was built in about 1450 by Sir Colin Campbell, first Lord of Glenorchy, on a rocky peninsula at the northeastern end of Loch Awe, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.  We passed it on our last day in Argyll, as we headed back to Edinburgh for the last two days of our tour of Scotland.
And, yeah, we wanna go back…

Kilchurn Castle is a ruined 15th and 17th century structure on a rocky peninsula at the northeastern end of Loch Awe, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.
