Ardveck Castle was built around the 1590 period by the MacLeods who owned Assynt since about the 13th century. It burned down in the 18th century and has just recently been worked on to maintain it from futher damage.

The castle is on Loch Assynt in the NW Scotland. There is a lot of history surrounding this building and if your passing that way its a short walk from the main road which has a car park for ths site.

I tried to capture the building as a simple picture to show it and the detail of the stones building this place. I may upload another picture showing the area arround it sometime soon Smile

Feedback welcome.

Very nice (odd illusion, looks like its leaning, but outer line dissagrees)

Good bold image Thomas, I saw the same optical illusion, very good tone applied with very good detail in the large version, well taken, Adrian

Its also unusual in its design Thomas (though I'm no expert) with the round tower changing into a square design and a bit of the Piza effect where its subsided over years. looks like a great subject for future shots. Adrian

Lovely toning, agree with Adrian re the design from round tower to square, looks like the kind of place where a multitude of captures could be acquired.
