Skipness Castle was built in the 13th and 14th Centuries on the Kintyre Peninsula in Argyll on Scotland's west coast. The square castle is located on a flat area not far from the sea and was probably built as a defense against Viking raids.

The south gate, closest to the sea, features a small gatehouse with a portcullis. The tower in the northeast corner is five floors high. The top three floors and the parapet walk were added in the early 16th Century.

My reconstruction of Skipness Castle is about 30 x 25 inches (96 x 80 studs) and is about 18 inches high. The buildings within the castle are speculation.
