Castle Stalker in Appin
Loch Linnhe, Argyll & Bute
A few photographs taken against the light on a dullish day in late April.
These views are looking across Loch Linnhe towards Glensanda Quarry on the
Kingarloch coast of the Morvern peninsula.
On the left horizon is the northern end of Lismore.
The castle dates back all the way to around 1320 and has, to put it mildly, a
chequered career involving several families and many changes of ownership.
Now restored the castle is in private hands and is fully habitable.
The castle sits on an island named Eilean an Stalcaire and the smaller one nearby is Eilean a’ Ghaill.
Stalcaire translates as hunter or stalker, hence the name.
A tighter crop.
