Duart Castle
Duart Castle, on Mull, is a restored castle owned by Clan MacLean and was seen in the film "Entrapment" starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta Jones.
The castle is built on a large rock outcropping.
The Guard House
Although in ruins today, the castle stimulates the imagination of life in ancient times.
We are sitting on the edge of the castle well.
Dunstaffnage Castle
You can walk along the top of the castle walls and see incredible views.
Castle Stalker
Driving north of Oban toward the Isle of Skye, we passed by Castle Stalker which was built by the MacDougalls around 1320.  This is a private residence today and can only be accessed by water.
Day Three began with a tour of Dunstaffnage Castle, two miles north of Oban.  Dunstaffnage was built in the 1200s by Clan MacDougall; however the area surrounding Dunstaffnage was the original capital of Dal Riada, lands commanded by Kenneth MacAlpin in ancient times.  The scenery in this area is breathtakingly beautiful, with forested hills and quiet bays filled with sailboats.
