NS3578 : Kilmahew Castle - SW corner

taken 9 years ago, near to Geilston, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Kilmahew Castle - SW corner
Kilmahew Castle - SW corner
For the main description of the castle, and for the early history of the lands of Kilmahew, see NS3578 : Kilmahew Castle.

In the foreground is what appears to be the remnants of a staircase (it was still climbable, with care), ascending from the lower left corner of the photo towards the two recesses; these recesses date from the attempted remodelling of the castle (I'm not sure what they were intended for, aside from decoration; they seem rather small for statue alcoves).

Note the opening on the right-hand side of the staircase, also shown at NS3578 : Kilmahew Castle - short passage beneath staircase.
