Barcaldine Castle is a 17th-century tower house castle built by Sir Duncan Campbell, of Glenorchy, between 1601 and 1609. The castle fell into disrepair in the later 19th century, when Barcaldine House became the principal residence of the family. It was restored between 1897-1911 and now operates as the Barcaldine Castle bed & breakfast hotel.

Amazing location and building. Wonderful views and rooms. Breakfast was decent. Facilities at the place are very limited. Great for a night or two.

Couldn’t imagine a better place to get married. We had the whole castle for the weekend. Abbie and Daniel made everything and even more to make us feel welcome, relaxed and happy. Highly recommend!

Abbie, Daniel and the team were excellent, a warm welcome awaits and they can’t do enough to make your stay one to remember. Afternoon tea in the Castle is a must the surroundings are amazing, historic medieval splendour with modern amenities. Take a walk to Loch Creran while there, only down the road and well worth it. If you are in any doubt just book it seriously you won’t be disappointed!.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
