Ruins on the loch. In the Highlands for Saint Andrews Day
Clan Campbell built this castle on the shore of Loch Awe in the Highlands of western Scotland during the mid-15th century. Kilchurn Castle withstood numerous structural changes and battles, but it couldn’t survive a lightning strike in 1760, and by 1770 the roof was gone and the castle in ruins. In the summer, you can hike to the ruins and explore.
Why are we taking in the moody skies and terrain of Scotland today? It’s Saint Andrews Day, a holiday in Scotland, where Andrew is the patron saint.
