Castle Stalker is on its own island 25 miles north of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. It’s a romantic looking castle with the mood of the water surrounding it lending the atmosphere.
The name means ‘hunter’ and originally this was a small fortified building belonging to the MacDougalls in 1320. In 1620 the castle was handed over to the Campbells as part of a wager and today it’s a family home that is only open to the public for around five weeks each year for tours.
You’ll be taken to the castle by boat so no wheelchair access or large groups. The cafe is lovely and you can get a hot drink and meal before the tour.
