  The castle, or what remains of it
by shivan

Located on Loch Assynt, the Ardvreck Castle has been an important stronghold for the Clan MacLeod during fifteenth century, a warry period.
In the background the mountain Quinag towers above the castle.
Some history found around:
The loser of the Battle of Carbisdale, the Marquis of Montrose was captured around here in 1650 - the stories vary as to what exactly transpired - and it is believed he was held in the castle before being sent to Edinburgh for execution.
