Stalker: Castle Stalker was built by the Stewarts of Appin in the 16th century.
A simple but stout rectangular keep of three storeys with a garret. Stalker sits
on a small islet at the edge of Loch Laich. At high tide it is only reachable
by boat. Castle Stalker was sold by Duncan Stewart, the 6th laird of Appin, in
1620 and came into possession by the Campbells. The Privy Council of 1684 ordered
it to be given back to Stewarts and after a prolonged siege the Stewarts retrieved
it. They lost it again in 1690 because of their support of Jacobite cause. Castle
Stalker was abandoned about 1780. The present owners begin restorations in 1960.
