Towns & Villages

    Balcaldine is a scattered village situated near the southern shore of Loch Creran.

    To the west of the village is Bacaldine castle, also known as the ‘Black Castle’ because of its dark stones. This 17th century tower house was built in 1609. In 1691 MacIan of Glencoe was detained at this castle by bad weather on his way to Inveraray to sign the oath of allegiance to King William III. This delay led to the Massacre of Glencoe the following year. Nearby Barcaldine Forest is a popular destination with walkers and cyclist.
