Artist's Description

Kilchurn Castle is a ruined 15th century structure on the northeastern end of Loch Awe, in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It was built on a small island scarcely larger than the castle itself, although it is now connected to the mainland as the water level of Loch Awe was lowered in 1817.

The castle was the ancestral home of the Campbells of Glen Orchy. It was built in 1450 by Sir Colin Campbell, first Lord of Glenorchy, as a five storey tower house with a courtyard defended by an outer wall. Today, it’s a picturesque structure in a romantic state of decay, making it a popular photographic subject in Scotland.
