A castle destroyed in the 17th Century is to open to the public on Sunday after 10 years of restoration work.
The castle has been undergoing restoration for 10 years
Gylen Castle on the island of Kerrera, near Oban, was home to the Clan MacDougall, who made an appeal to members worldwide to raise £500,000.
It was built in 1582 and 65 years later came under siege, its occupants were massacred and it was set on fire.
It was restored with a £300,000 Historic Scotland grant and £200,000 from clan members around the world.
The Historic Scotland grant enabled a specialist architectural team to restore elements of the castle, including its oriel window and its vaulted cellar.
Its spectacular position perched high on a clifftop commands magnificent views of the Firth of Lorne and surrounding islands.
Clan Chief Morag MacDougall of MacDougall officially opened the castle on Friday.
She said: "We are delighted the castle is now open to the public after years of conservation work.
"We are grateful to our conservation and contracting team who have worked in all the vagaries of Highland weather in a very exposed position."
The public will be able to access it from Sunday.
John Raven, inspector of ancient monuments with Historic Scotland, said "Gylen Castle is an extremely fine example of a late medieval tower house.
"The castle benefits from a dramatic setting which has made it an important landmark for sailors and land-based travellers alike."
Gylen Castle has no entrance fee and is open all year round.
