Fort at the Headland of the Staff

Dunstaffnage Castle is a partially ruined castle in Argyll and Bute, western Scotland. It lies three miles N.N.E. of Oban, situated on a platform of conglomerate rock on a promontory at the south-west of the entrance to Loch Etive, and is surrounded on three sides by the sea. The castle dates to the XIII century, making it one of Scotland’s oldest stone castles, in a local group which includes Castle Sween and Castle Tioram. Guarding a strategic location, it was built by the MacDougall lords of Lorne, and has been held since the XV century by the Clan Campbell.
