Well, here it is! What else can be said? You have to see it! To get up close is a bit tricky...bike paths, etc. Views from the cafe above are nice but a bit far away.

What a sight to see! We started our day off with this Castle. We parked behind the Inn and walked down to the viewing point. There was a sign with some helpful history. Great spot to visit.

We parked up in the Jubilee Bridge car park on the road to Port Appin. The bridge allows easy access across the estuary affording fabulous views of the castle and Morvern and Lismore. An abundance of wildfowl added to the experience. Once across the bridge you quickly join the cycle track. This proceeds via the old Appin Railway station and... More

Haven't visited the castle but have certainly viewed it from afar. Glorious views. We visited the Castle Stalker cafè and were then able to wander on nearby land to be able to take the photos.

A classic Scottish view with little islands in the lochs, one with the remains of the house, only accessible by boat and only "special" occasions. The gift shop and cafe was shut - not an issue for us. The sun shone brightly so all looked idyllic. I'm glad I wasn't there in a storm !

I thoroughly enjoyed practicing my photography in the very atmospheric weather we had that day! Wait until the tide goes out though!

We popped here after a walk in the nearby mountains and arrived just in time for sunset. The position of the castle out on it's island is idyllic and if you can time your visit for sunset it makes for a memorable evening.

From the hotel not much safe path to walk to get to the castle, either take the car or bicycle. A car park is located at the beginning of the Marais

We were driving to Oban and saw the signs to the castle , so thought we would pull over to have a look. It is privately owned and only opened on specially arranged days so you can't go around it. However it is a beautiful castle in a stunning location , well worth a photo stop. Best view is from... More

Well worth the drive to see this castle. The castle sits in the loch and is a lovely spot for some photos.
