Last October I took a run to the village of Tayvallich on Loch Sween on the Argyll coast. I noticed on the map that on the other side of the Loch was Castle Sween. I didn't have time visit then but went for a run there yesterday.
Castle Sween is thought to be the oldest castle in Scotland and dates from the late 1100s.
