Scope and Content Coroghon Castle, Canna from the north Coroghon Castle stands on top of a stack at the south-east end of the cliffs that form the east end of Canna. The castle is said to have been a prison, used in the late 17th century by Donald MacDonald of Clanranald to confine his wife. The stack juts out into the sea, and is accessible only by a steep path which ascends a narrow neck of land connecting it to the mainland. A survey of Canna and Sanday was undertaken by the Royal Commission to record all the archaeological sites and monuments and the landscape within which they lie. This landscape is published as RCAHMS Broadsheet 5. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
