Hermit's Castle, Achmelvich

Achmelvich is home to what is reputedly Europe's smallest castle, known locally as Hermit's Castle. The castle was built in the 1950s by an English architect (David Scott), who left the area shortly after completion, spending only a weekend in the castle he spent months building. The castle was vandalised in the 1970s, when the windows were smashed and the door removed, but it is not unknown for people to use the castle as a bothy.
