 Castles of Scotland - Glengorm Castle






Location
Isle of Mull, Argyll and Bute, Scotland

Description
Glengorm Castle is situated north of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull off the coast of western Scotland. It was built in 1860 for James Forsyth, the laird who oversaw the Dervaig Clearances which forced hundreds of people out of their homes. The castle has a walled garden that is an important location for the cultivation of vegetables on the island. A track leads past the castle to some standing stones and the ruins of Dun Ara Fort to the west. The castle is now owned by artist Janet Nelson, and houses modern art painted or chosen by her. The castle is not open to the public for tours, but visitors can stay in self-catering or B&B accommodation. The castle has a coffee shop, farm shop and art gallery.
