Rossdhu Castle

A ruined square tower house on the west shore of Loch Lomond, Rossdhu Castle lies behind the 18th green of the Loch Lomond Golf Course, close to Rossdhu House, 2 miles (3 km) south of Luss in Argyll and Bute. The castle was built by Sir John Colquhoun of Luss in 1457 on land which had been in his family's possession since the 13th century. In the 16th century, Rossdhu was visited by Mary, Queen of Scots (1542-87). The castle suffered a fire in the late 18th Century and was quarried for stone for Rossdhu House, where the family moved in 1773. The ruins were stabilised in 1997. Nearby is the Chapel of St. Mary of Rossdhu.
