Castle Stalker Holiday Accommodation Guide

Castle Stalker, At the mouth of Loch Laich sits a little rocky islet that is locally referred to as Rock of the Cormorants. On this islet stands Castle Stalker, a four-story tower house that dates back to the middle ages. Castle Stalker is a tall, huge, and simple tower that is rectangular in design, with four floors and a garret. It is dramatically located on a small island at the mouth of Loch Laich. The name Castle Stalker comes from the Gaelic word Stalcaire, which means "hunter" or "falconer." The stairway is topped with a gabled caphouse that sits atop a flush parapet that was remodelled in the 16th century. Shot-holes can be found all throughout the thick walls.

Discovering Castle Stalker Holiday Accommodation

It is impossible for motorists travelling along the A828 between Creagan and Ballachulish, which is located on the rocky coast of Argyll, not to notice the picturesque profile of Castle Stalker, which is perched on a tiny islet in Loch Laich. The MacDougall family, who were the lords of Lorn at the time, started construction on the castle in the early 14th century.

When James IV of Scotland went on hunting and hawking trips to Argyll, he frequently stayed at Castle Stalker. It's possible that the castle was extended to accommodate the king's needs during his time there. It's possible that the royal arms are depicted on the worn coat of arms that hangs over the entryway.
