Finlarig Castle – Explore

We recently visited Killin, Stirlingshire, in order to return to Finlarig Castle. There is a very comprehensive history of the castle over at Undiscovered Scotland which we highly recommend you check out! This 1600’s building is now pretty much in complete ruin and there is a warning sign as you approach regarding the dangerous condition of the area.

Here’s Ian’s selection of images:

There’s still plenty of features left which help build a mental image of what the place would have looked like in its glory days
