DSC_0165-Small02JPegA 15th Century a tower house on the West shore of Loch Goil, Argyll, Scotland. Records show that Mary Queen Of Scots was a guest of the castle in 1563. In 1685 during the rebellion against King James V11 the castle was badly damaged by bombardments from HMS Kingfisher. The castle was then passed to the Earl of Dunmore but was left in a ruinous condition. Today the castle is been restored, and is now a private home. The Royal Navy still use the Loch with ships and submarines.
