Lady Margaret's Tower, Lochnell

We noticed the tower from the campsite at North Ledaig many years ago and also from Kayaking around the Rubha Garbh-aird.
We had always thought that one day we would walk up and take a look. 
So one very wet day we set off on foot from the site at North Ledaig.
We Stopped for a coffee at the coffee shop in Benderloch on the way. 
Very nice too.
They told us at the coffee shop the name of the Tower and that we could get a key and climb the tower.
We doubted we would be able to get the key and were happy just to walk up and have a look from out side.

 As we walked through the court yard a guy came out of one of the houses and gave us the key to the tower.

 Walking up to through the woods the rain eased and the views began to open up.

 The imposing door of the tower
 The key is on the step it was massive !!
 Undoing the bolts
 Who's going first ?
 The views are absolutely amazing even in the rain 

 The rain began to clear.

 The long road home. 
We picked blackberries M ate all of his but I saved mine and made some lovely Jam. 
Now every time I have my home made blackberry jam I think of our day out to Lady Margaret's Tower.
