Carnassarie Castle

Carnassarie Castle is situated north of Kilmartin. It was built between 1565 and 1572 by John Carswell, Bishop of the Isles. The castle is considered a key building of its time, marking the fusion of a medieval tower (Petra looks into Kilmartin Glen here) and a great hall in one integrated layout. Even if it is a ruin today, it has been prepared nicely, and you will see many details. It will take you about 15 minutes from the car park to the site. Free of charge. Recommended!
