"The most picturesque object on this lake, and, perhaps, one of the finest ruins in Britain, is Kilchurn Castle." From 'Remarks on Local Scenery and Manners in Scotland' vol.1 by John Stoddart.

Kilchurn Castle stands on a small projecting point in Loch Awe. It was originally built by Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy c.1450. The Campbells of Glenorchy later became the Earls of Breadalbane and the castle was extended. It was badly damaged by lightning in 1760 and abandoned
