Lachlan Castle is a lovely romantic ruin on a small islet in Loch Fyne. It was built by Clan Maclachlan, who also built the current Castle Lachlan, visible through the trees nearby. The old Castle Lachlan probably dates to the 13th century, and was reduced to a ruin after the Duke of Cumberland ordered it bombarded from the sea following the collapse of Bonnie Prince Charlie's 1745 rebellion. Unfortunately there is no public access, but there are good views from the shore.
