Loch Doon or Balloch Castle is an eleven-sided curtain-walled castle designed to defend its original island site at the southern end of Loch Doon. The stonework is outstanding and its beautifully hewn blocks of ashlar have stood the test of time. Owned by Historic Scotland, Loch Doon Castle takes the form of an irregular polygon, having eleven sides. This came about as it was built to fit the shape of the island, on which it formerly stood, within the loch. Fishing in Loch Doon (by rod and line) is free; trout are plentiful and a rare fish, the char, is found here.
There are an abundance of hills to challenge the experienced walker who should be aware of the great extent of this wild country, the rough terrain, and the remoteness of help should any accident occur.
