Type Castle

Stonefield Castle, also known as Barmore House, is a Scottish baronial manor house near the village of Stonefield, north of Tarbert, Knapdale, Argyll & Bute, Scotland.

According to shanachies, the castle was constructed by the then current MacAlasdair Constable of Tarbert Castle. He neglected his duties as Constable of Tarbert Castle and allowed it to fall into disrepair. He lost, as a result of his neglect, his position of Constable of Tarbert and possession of Stonefield Castle, in the middle of the 18th century, to Charles Campbell. The castle was extended and remodelled in 1837[1] and designed by architects William Henry Playfair and William Notman.
