Built by Sir Duncan Campbell, 7th Laird of Glenorchy in the early 17th century, Barcaldine Castle locally known as the black castle is a defensive tower house. Barcaldine castle is nowhere near Barcaldine village but in fact just outside Benderloch village a number of miles to the south of Barcaldine.

Barcaldine castle is a family home however it is open to the public every easter and then from May to September. An interesting fact is that the artist F C B Cadell (pronounced "caddle as in paddle" not "ca-dell", although his sister preferred the second pronunciation) lived here for a while. Paintings from this famous Scottish colourist are now sought after and change hands for six figure amounts.
