Carnasserie Castle **

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>


Carnasserie Castle was built in 1565 by Bishop John Carswell for his noble master the Earl of Argyll. Carnasserie was captured and partly blown up in 1685 by Royalist forces during Argyll’s rebellion against James VII in 1685. Although it was still regarded as one of the finest houses in Argyll, no attempt was made to renovate or repair the castle.
