Castle Stalker's largest claim to fame was in Monty Python and the Holy Grail....
I thought it was Highlander?
I think it was in an episode of the Avengers or something similar.
Definitely one of the castles in Holy grail...
Episode 1 of the first series of the New Avengers ('The Eagles Nest') from 1976.
Memorable to many (predominantly male) people for the scene in which the fisherman uses his fly fishing rod to remove articles of Purdey's clothing before she does some ballet-type spinning around and comprehensively kicks his...er...bottom.
Very nice.I want to look at this in real LIFE!
Its a really good place to base yourself. To the south Loch Awe is big and varied- the carpark at the Cruachan power station has bird table pine martens.The coast road to the south is also packed with opportunity. Loch Etive is usually like a mirror. Then as others have said, its an important ferry port with several island routes- long and short. Sadly I hve never thought much of the town itself.
I feel obliged to mention that the distillery and its whisky are lovely.
Oban is not particularly nice. It is a very good starting point.
As for basing yourself at the Torridon camp site and traversing Liathach and Ben Eigh (on separate days with a rest day inbetween) JFDI. Even you can't do 'em on a bike.
Hoping to get up that way exploring real soon......bit far to scout out potential locations for a family camping holiday up the north west in a day so I'm trying to find 2 together so me and the dogs can go up with the wee tent to get an idea. SWMBO agreed to a bit of rough camping this year
