Gylen Castle

Gylen Castle is a ruined castle, or tower house, on a rocky ridge at the south end of the island of Kerrera. The castle was built in 1582 by the Clan MacDougall. The castle was only occupied for a relatively short time as it was besieged then burned by the Covenanters under General Leslie in 1647 during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms.
