Loch Awe and Kilchurn Castle
Visit this fascinating ruined 15th and 17th century castle and enjoy wonderful views over Loch Awe.
There is a good walking track running from a parking area on the A85 to the castle. It's a lovely flat path with super views of the castle and the loch for the whole way. At the castle you can explore the tower house and courtyard before climbing the keep for wonderful views over Loch Awe. There is also a jetty over the water where there are great views back to the castle. You can return on the same path or along grassy paths by the loch if it is not too wet.
