Fodor's Review

The oldest stone castle on the Scottish mainland, this 12th-century structure sits on a rocky bit of coast about 12 miles south of Crinan. From the northwest tower, known as the Latrine Tower, you can enjoy the dramatic views of the Paps of Jura. That will give you a sense of its commanding position.You can reach it via an unclassified road off the B841 to Crinan.
