The second picture of Kilchurn Castle is a fake.

Yeah because on the first picture you can see that this castle is on the shore of the Lochnes lake. BTW, how about Loket castle in Czech Republic? :)

Actually Kilchurn Castle is on Lock Awe. The Second picture kind of has it on a cliff which it's not on, the castle is on marshy banks.

Le château de Pierrefonds, n'est pas le château de Pierrefonds. Il est à l'orée de la forêt de Compiègne et non au bord de la mer comme sur la photo et il est bien plus grand. C'est dommage, du coup on ne sait pas trop si les autres sont bien… Read more »

Thank you for including Caerlaverock! It is the central castle, historically, for the Maxwell clan. One of my greatest memories is of exploring and climbing all in these ruins as a teenager!

If you ever get a chance (and if the region is ever safe enough), visit the fort in the heart of Gereshk City, Helmand, Afghanistan. I’m sure it predates Christianity. It’s not very pretty by aesthetical standards. It looks like a sand castle after a hard rain. The sheer age… Read more »
