Scottish Castles - Finlarig Castle, Killin, Scotland

Finlarig Castle, Killin, Scotland

Finlarig was built in the early 1600s by Black Duncan of GlenOrchy, probably the most feared of the Campbell clan. He also built a chapel where the ruins of the mausoleum stand to the east of the castle on the mound. The mausoleum was built by the Campbells ( of Breadalbane) in the early 1800s. If you walk up to the castle, then face towards the mausoleum ruins, you'll see two gravestones side by side to the left. These stones mark the resting place of the Marquis and Marchioness of Breadalbane - the last of the Campbell line and descendants of Black Duncan - who built this castle and the first mausoleum (also in ruins) behind the graves.
