This evening, I am posting information on Taymouth Castle, which is not a visitor attraction and is not normally open to the public.
 
Some key facts:
  • Built on te site of ancient Balloch Castle which was built in 1550 for Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy.
  • This branch of the Campbell Clan subsequently fell on hard times but the family fortunes were subsequently restored.
  • The current castle dates from 1842 when it was completed in time for the visit of Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort.
  • The family estates were broken up prior to WW1. The Castle then went through various changes of ownership and function including hotel, convalescent home, civil defence and a school.
  • After lying dormant for many years the building is in process of being converted to a luxury hotel.
