LOCATION | Gylen Castle, Oban, 🏴
🏝The Isle of Kerrera is a remote and tranquil place with its 34 residents enjoying a quieter pace of life. It was not always so for in the sixteenth century the Sound of Kerrera was one of the busiest shipping lanes in the region offering easy access to the islands of the Inner Hebrides. It was to control this trade that prompted Duncan MacDougall of Dunollie to build Gylen Castle around 1582. Also known by its Gaelic name, Caisteal nan Geimhlean, it occupied the full width of a rocky peninsula with sheer cliffs on either side.
🏰The castle consisted of a four storey 'L' plan Tower House that was built in the Scots Baronial style. The ground floor consisted of a vaulted store and an access passageway that led to a small courtyard occupying the area to the edge of the cliff as well as the adjoined Stair Tower. The latter provided access to all levels with the first floor hosting the Kitchen and Hall, the second a Solar and accommodation above. As was standard the entrance was via a heavy wooden door as well as a yett, an iron grille designed to resist attempts to burn through the door. A forework built immediately in front of the tower provided numerous gun loops for firing upon attackers landing in the bays below the castle. An Outer Bailey, itself protected by a barmkin (curtain wall), was established on the neck of land approaching the Tower House. This would have housed all the ancillary buildings associated with such a settlement and also had a natural spring that provided water for the site.
