Castle Stalker

Recognise it as Castle Aaaaaaargh from Monty Python's cult classic The Holy Grail?

Castle Stalker is a renowned Scottish landmark. It's a picturesque castle surrounded by water and located 25 miles north of Oban. The castle is privately owned but they do run a very limited number of tours each year – these can be arranged by prior appointment.

In the Gaelic, Stalcaire, meaning Hunter or Falconer – is believed originally to have been the site of a Fortalice (a small fortified building) belonging to the MacDougalls when they were Lords of Lorn, and built around 1320. Castle Stalker, much in its present form, was built by the Lord of Lorn, Sir John Stewart.

The Castle Stalker View café with its panoramic views of Castle Stalker and Loch Linnhe is a great place for a drink and a bite to eat.
