Later we stopped to see Dunstaffnage Castle near Oban. This a 13th Century castle, built around 1220 that still retains much of its original form. A massive stronghold built on top of a rocky prominence overlooking the bay. Originally it had a curtain wall around the outside and a higher perimeter wall along the edge of the hill along the bay. The castle is relatively intact, and is well preserved (or restored). The gatehouse has had many additions of the centuries, including a major overhaul and addition in the 18th Century. Near the Castle was a chapel built about the same time as the castle. This was the ancestral home of the Clan Macdougall.
