Product description

Dunderave Castle and the MacNachtans of Argyll

By Matthew Cock

Published by the Dunderave Estate, 1998

Published to celebrate the 400th anniversary of John and Anna MacNachtan's inscription above the entrance. the estate has commissioned this comprehensive study of Dunderave Castle. Starting in the 13th century with the MacNachtan's first castle on Loch Awe, it follows the clan's history until the 18th century, when they were finally forced to desert Dunderave, the final twist in their turbulent relationship with the Campbell House of Argyll.

By the turn of the 20th century, the castle was derelict and roofless, used only by the Noble family when they came around the loch from Ardkinglas and lit fires in the Red Banner Hall., telling ghost stories beneath the sky. Fortunately, Sir Andrew Noble ensured Dunderave's renaissance, commissioning Arts and Crafts architect Robert Lorimer and his skilled team to restore the castle and add two new wings, which count as some their finest and most subtle work, maintaining the fragile beauty of Dunderave in the true spirit of the original architects."

In absolute fine condition. Insured postage.
