Craigneil Castle (also known as Kragaeil Castle)4170

Colmonell, Scotland

Brief Description

The ruined shell of Craigneil Castle stands on a partially-quarried knoll of limestone above the River Stinchar.

History

Craigneil Castle is said to have been built in the 13th century by Neil, Earl of Carrick. During the 17th century there was a designed landscape with an impaled, wooded park and planting by the River Stinchar. The planting appears to have degraded by the mid-18th century and the castle was a ruin by the end of the century.
