Carrick Castle
« on: 14 June, 2017, 11:23:27 PM »

Carrick Castle is a tower house on the west shore of Loch Goil on the Cowal peninsula in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It is located between Cuilmuich and Carrick, 4 miles south of Lochgoilhead.

The Castle consists of two floors above the central great hall. The building is oblong, 66 feet long by 38 feet wide, with walls seven feet thick. It stands 64 feet high. There is a curiosity – a small chimney is built into a window recess.

A hunting seat of the Scots kings, Carrick was originally a Lamont stronghold.
