Free entry. A beautifull site on the edge of Loch Awe set amongst fantastic scenery. When the sun is shinning there is no better place to be if visiting castles is your thing. You can park just off the main road and walk the path.....best...More

We spotted Kilchurn Castle from the road while driving by. As it was raining, we didn't take the 1/4 mile walk, but stopped for a couple of photos. Nice setting.

Sign said closed but went in anyway. Walk a quarter of a mile from the road, very muddy, wear boots or wellys. Not signposted from the road so easy to miss. Worth a look, great views.

Kilchurn Castle, or what is left of it at least, is perched on the very end of a loch surrounded by marshy wetlands with a decent approach on a somewhat raised path from the car park to the castle. The walk itself is very easy...More

We enjoyed the walk through the fields to reach the castle. Not many people around, so it was quiet and fun to explore. The ruins are very well preserved, and have an interesting history. This castle is situated off the beaten track, so it is...More
