There is something magical about all our Scottish castles but those that stand on islands and seem almost impossible to reach are particularly tantalising for intrepid castle hunters.
Here’s a selection that you might want to add to your castle visit list. Found in some of Scotland's most stunning locations, perhaps it might encourage you to visit?
Loch an Eilean Castle in the Cairngorms National Park, Aviemore
Finlaggan Castle was the centre of the Lordship of the Isles on beautiful Isle of Islay
Castle Tioram (pronounced Chee-rum) on the remote Ardnamurchan peninsular
Castle Tioram from another view - it deserves to be pictured twice
Threave Castle in the River Dee - home of the Black Douglas
Kildonan Castle, Arran, above a sandy beach
Brodick Castle, Arran, above the island’s capital
Dunyvaig Castle, Islay - close to a malt distillery - both worth a visit!
Kilchurn Castle, Loch Awe - almost an island!
Loch Gorm Castle, Islay - it’s there!
