Stonefield CastleStonefield Castle


Stonefield CastleStonefield Castle is located off the A83, just 2 miles north of Tarbert between Lochgilphead and Campbeltown. The A83 is reached from the A82 Loch Lomond Road.

An alternate, but rather longer route, would be to travel from Glasgow to Gourock and take the ferry to Dunoon. You can then follow the road from Dunoon to Inverary and pick up the A83.

Although located some 2.5 hours from Glasgow, the drive to the castle is far from boring. Along the route you will wind your way around lochs, up and down rolling hills and pass many small picturesque towns.

Visitors have travelled near and far to tread the winding paths through the woodland gardens within the castle grounds, which boast some of the finest and rarest examples of Himalayan rhododendrons and other exotic shrubs. One of the very finest garden tours in Scotland .

Here in the sheltered cove running down to the castle harbour and jetty on the shores of the Loch, is a scene reminiscent of the Reichi La Pass leading to Bhutan in the Himalayas. Magnificent species, such as the Arboreum, Campanulatum, Cinnabarinum and Triforum thrive as vigorously as in their native land. Many of the plants are over 100 years old, having been raised from seed collected by Sir Joseph Hooker on his Himalayan travels in a bygone era.
