Old Photograph Ardmaddy Castle Scotland

Old photograph of Ardmaddy Castle located twelve miles from Oban, Scotland. This castle was a seat of the Earl of Breadalbane in Kilbrandon parish. It stands on rising ground, at the head of a fine small bay, opposite Seil island, two miles North of Loch Melford. It belonged to the Macdougals, Lords of Lorn; passed to the Campbells of the House of Argyll; was occupied and enlarged by Lord Neil Campbell, who suffered during the persecution in the time of King Charles II, and was put to death in 1685; became the residence of Colin Campbell, the father of the late Marquis of Breadalbane, and was the birthplace of the marquis. A small cave, in the face of a rock, at a short distance from it, is pointed out as a hiding place of Lord Neil Campbell in the time of the persecution.
