Scope and Content View of Saddell Castle and outbuildings from the south-east, Argyll and Bute Saddell Castle was built in 1508-10 by David Hamilton, Bishop of Argyll. It was attacked in 1558 but the extent of the damage is unknown. In 1650 much of it was repaired. It was restored in the 19th century and again in the 1970s. The castle is an oblong-plan tower-house of four storeys and has a crowstepped gabled garret. It has a crenellated parapet projecting from a course of individual corbels, or projecting blocks of stone. There is an open turret at each corner. The wall to the left of the castle is the stable which dates to the 18th century. The building which projects at the far left is the byre, dating to the 19th century and possibly later. The wall leading up to the byre also dates to the 19th century. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
