Castle Toward - Cowal Peninsula, Argyll & Bute
Castle Toward in close-up before restoration began.
Originally built from the 1820s by the Lamont family this building has been through a
number of changes over the years.
These vary from a naval base named HMS Brontosaurus - when it was the headquarters
of the No 2 Combined Training Centre for landing craft crews in World War 2 - right
through to a youth training centre in more recent years.
Argyll & Bute, 7 miles (11 km) south of Dunoon on the north coast of the Clyde.
Castle Toward has now been bought as probably a private house and is
under long-term renovation.
From further back and showing Buachailean to the north as the backdrop.
Mention has been made of using the castle for various business enterprises.
This wider view shows the castle and the walled gardens to the west.
All of these photos were taken from over the beach to the south, the view of the
castle being obscured from ground level (the coast road alongside the beach) by
a screen of trees.
