Fincharn Castle, Loch Awe, Argyll
Fincharn Castle, Loch Awe, Argyll
The castle was built around 1240, after the land here was granted to Gillascop MacGilchrist by Alexander II. It was captured in 1297 from the Stewarts in the interest of Edward I and held by John MacDougall of Lorn into the 14thC. The castle passed to Alexander Scrymgeour, Constable of Dundee in 1374 and was held by his descendants until 1688. It was then occupied by tenants before falling into ruins in the early 18thC (information provided by Matthew Hatton).
