Skipness has an impressive castle, building commenced in the 13th Century and was abandoned at the end of the 17th. The strong thick walled castle withstood a seige by the MacDonalds during Colkitto raids who turned their attention to Dunaverty where they massacred inhabitants there. The chapel close by is in posession of some interesting medieval tombstones in wooden protective cases.
