Old Castle Archdale
Old Castle Archdale
Pictured at Bunaninver - dating from the 1600s, on the information board I noted the following:

ATTACKS, 1641 AND 1689

In the 1641 rising Castie Archdale was captured by Rory Maguire as part of the uprising to retake his lands forfeit in 1607. The heir, William
Archdale, was saved by his nurse but the other Archdale children were murdered. The castle was repaired and inhabited until 1689. This time it was burnt out and abandoned.
