The castle stands on a rocky promontory on the N side of Loch Crinan with a wide prospect on all sides except N and NW.
Restoration and alterations were undertaken in 1796 when the castle came into the hands of Neil Malcolm of Poltalloch and was further modernised and extended between 1954-7 by Col. George Malcolm of Poltalloch.
The castle is privately owned and is not open to the public.
