History

Lochranza, on the island of Arran, dates from the late 13th to the mid 14th century with 16th-century additions. It has an added jamb, or wing, which was built on to increase the castle's defence capability. The square tower projects to cover the entrance, and is equipped with long arrow slits. The original entrance was barrel-vaulted.
