A five minute drive from Kilmartin Museum will take you to Carnasserie Castle- technically, a ruin, but remarkably preserved and great fun to explore.
Built in the 16th century overlooking Kilmartin Glen by an important clergyman, its Renaissance stone work can still be seen, despite having been partially blown up by Royalist forces during the Monmouth Rebellion. You can climb the five-story stone tower via the narrow winding staircase (bring a torch!) and enjoy the sweeping view over the glen.
