Here are some of the castles of Clan Campbell.

Innis Chonnel Castle

Innis Chonnel Castle is on an island in Loch Awe. It was the first of the Campbell Castles, and is now a ruin. 

The castle cannot be visited, but it can be seen from the road on the south side of Loch Awe. 

Inveraray Castle

Inveraray Castle is in Inveraray, Argyll, on Loch Fyne. It is where our Chief, the Duke of Argyll, and his wife, the Duchess, live. 

You can visit the castle during the summer months, when it is open to the public.

Loudoun Castle

Loudoun Castle was the home of the Campbells of Loudoun, the first of the three younger houses of Clan Campbell. It is in Ayrshire, not too far away from Glasgow, the biggest city in Scotland. Loudoun Castle burned during World War II, and was not restored. 

Kilchurn Castle

Kilchurn Castle was the first castle of the Campbells of Breadalbane, also called the Campbells of Glen Orchy. It was built on an island at the northern end of Loch Awe, but the water is now lower, and the castle is connected to the shore by a narrow piece of land. 

It is a ruin, but you can visit it by just a short walk from the road. 

Cawdor Castle

Cawdor Castle is the home of the Earl Cawdor, the head of the Campbells of Cawdor. The castle has been kept very much the way it was when it was first built. It is known for its beautiful gardens. It is in Nairn, a short distance from the city called the "Capitol of the Highlands," Inverness. 

You can visit Cawdor Castle during the summer months, when it is open to the public.

Castle Campbell

Castle Campbell was the eastern home of the Earls of Argyll; they lived here when they visited the lowlands. The Castle is a short distance from the town of Dollar. The castle is a ruin. You can visit the castle during the summer months; there is a charge to go inside.
