Carnasserie Castle Review

The tower house of Carnasserie Castle is all that remains of this Renaissance structure. It has the distinction of having belonged to the writer of the first book printed in Gaelic. John Carswell, bishop of the isles, translated a text by the Scottish reformer John Knox into Gaelic and published it in 1567.
