Hermits Castle, Achmelvich
Description

The Hermits Castle on the coastline near Achmelvich is apparently Europe's smallest castle.

Built of concrete it's the work of one man, and English architect (or artist, accounts vary) named David Scott. He built the castle himself in the 1950 for reasons which are unknown today. Once completed he stayed there a few nights before disappearing.

I went inside, quite surprised I fit through the narrow doorway ;) and inside there's a concrete bed and a fireplace with just enough room to swing a cat if you don't mind it getting concussed!

Here's a great video by Bobby Niven (new window)
