  • Kisimul Castle is a medieval castle sited on a rock off Castlebay, on the southern coast of the Isle of Barra.

    The family stronghold of the Chiefs of Clan Macneil since 1039, Kisimul is the only surviving castle of significance in the Western Isles from this era. Known locally as the ‘Castle of the Sea’, you can take a 5 minute boat trip over from Castlebay, climb the battlements and admire the great views across the bay. Other interesting places to visit around Castlebay are Barra Heritage and Cultural Centre and Barra Golf Club.

    Kisimul is open seven days a week from April to September: www.historic-scotland.gov.uk
