Taymouth Castle: Apollo's Temple

Date 19 June 1990

Event ID 901089

Category Management

Type Site Management


Circular, surmounting mound; semicircular arches with triple keystones, low ogee roof. Harled with margins. One of the spectacular and complete group of structures making up the Taymouth Castle estate (Historic Scotland) .

There is some evidence that the entrances were enclosed with doors and there are references to a "metal cast of a god, now lying at the base with disemembered limbs" suggesting the building originally housed a sculpture. (RPS Consultants Ltd)

The castle and its contents were sold in 1922 and it became a hotel. The site operated as a Polish hospital during the war and was later leased to a civil defence school.
