(NO 3586 9742) Gairn Castle (NR) (In Ruins)

OS 6" map, (1938)

The remains of Abergairn Castle, a small tower-house, erected in 1614, comprise a rectangular main building surviving to 4ft maximum height, with a round tower at its NW angle, 10ft maximum height. The small size of the structure suggests that it was a hunting lodge of three or four storeys with garret.

The remains of Abergairn Castle as described and planned by Simpson, have been re-pointed and preserved as a memorial to A Keiller.
