Armadale Castle

From Wikipedia: “Armadale Castle is a ruined country house in Armadale, Isle of Skye,
former home of the MacDonalds of Sleat. A mansion house was first built here around 1790.
In 1815 a Scottish baronial style mock-castle, intended for show rather than defense, designed
by James Gillespie Graham, was built next to the house. After 1855 the part of the house destroyed
by fire was replaced by a central wing, designed by David Bryce. Since 1925 the castle, abandoned
by the Macdonald family, has fallen into ruin. The gardens around the castle have been maintained,
and are now home to the Clan Donald Centre.”
