Craignish castle (also known as (Loch Beag) is privately owned and, unfortunately, visitors are not believed to be welcome. Parts date from the 11th Century but many alterations have taken place since then. The castle is situated a couple of miles from the southern point of the Craignish peninsula.
The castle is a baronial build for one of the most ancient arms of the Clan Campbell. This caste was the home of a long line of Lairds of Craignish. The title is no longer in existence as the lands were lost and sold away from the Campbells. The castle was rebuilt in the early 19th century (about 1832) and used as a family home.
The Craignish peninsula is a hugely beautiful area and is easily accessed from the main Lochgilphead to Oban road by turning off when you see the sign for Ardfern. The scenery here just seems to get better even when you think it couldn't get any better. If you are walking on the rocks at Craignish Point, be aware that the tides run through here at up to 8 knots.
