Abstract:
An historic building survey of the ruins of Coroghan Castle, Canna was carried out in the middle of August 2008. The castle is owned by The National Trust for Scotland and is located at the E end of Canna, situated on the NW side of a stack some 25 m high that is otherwise surrounded by the sea. The ruin is roofless and deteriorating. Large sections of the facing stones along the base of the outer walls are missing and a deep crack has opened up in one of the walls. The survey was carried out to provide a basis for the National Trust in the planning of consolidation work to stabilise the ruin. According to local tradition the building was a prison, used in the late seventeenth century by a jealous husband to confine his wife. However, the location and design of the building clearly indicate that it was built as a defensive structure that turned the stack into a well defended position.
