Loch Rannoch Folly

Eilean nam Faoileag is a tiny island at the western edge of Loch Rannoch. It would be entirely unremarkable if it were not for the tower that sits eerily on top of it. In architecture, a ‘folly’ is an extravagant building that seems to suggest the folly of those who constructed it, and this out-of-place tower certainly fits the bill. It was reputedly built by Baron Granbley in the 19th century and is well worth trying to find, if only to ponder why it was made.
