This is the view of Inveraray Castle, that you see from the bridge on the road into Inveraray. For some reason we have yet to visit, even on holiday last year 2016 it didn’t happen. So for the moment its just the exterior, and in black and white, because it was a grey day and the castle is grey/green …… so it just got lost in colour.
A little history…The castle was built on a rectangular plan with a sturdy crenellated tower at the centre and circular towers at each corner. The new house bristles with mock-military features including turrets, moats, and slit windows. To provide an uninterrupted view from the castle, the entire burgh of Inveraray was destroyed and rebuilt half a mile away in its current location. Construction of the castle began in 1743 but took 43 years to complete.
