Scotland for Twenty: Carnasserie Castle

We drove just a little further down the road and went to Carnasserie Castle. The sun was soon to set and the castle was officially closed for the day. But, as CC said, "Let's give the door a little push."

It was beautiful! I loved this massive fireplace. And the man standing in front of it.

This Campbell castle was an important part of Christian history. It was here that John Carswell wrote the first book printed in Gaelic, John Knox's Book of Common Prayer. It was presented to the Earl of Argyll, a Campbell. John Carswell used this castle as a base to spread his Protestant faith.

Upon leaving, we saw the little castle caretaker's cottage. I suggested to CC I might like to live there! The cottage would suit me fine.
