This little spot didn't take long to see as there isn't a lot of the castle left. The area is a bit precarious with no rails some stone steps. The parking can be a bit tough as we didn't want to block the residential street...More

Whilst on the North Coast 500 we decided to stop off at this tranquil spot just off the beaten track and it was well worth the journey. Alongside the castle ruins there is crystal clear water and a small pebble beach where we were greeted...More

Took a detour to Strome Castle while on a drive around the lochs. In reality just some outer walls remain of the small castle, it has great views and is a good spot to take a photo. If you drove a long way, you'd likely...More

A slow amble out to Ardaneasken and stopped off here to take in the views. Clambered around the ruins taking in the history and took plenty of photos of the area. Ideal interesting fresh air break prior to continuing our itinerary.

No. And quite a scramble to visit. Lochcarron is quite close by though.
