Castle Toward was the Clan Seat of the Lamont Clan and the location of the
1646 massacre of 200 Lamonts by Clan Campbell.
Most Scots today would have some knowledge
of the Highland massacre of the MacDonalds in Glencoe by soldiers under the direction of Clan Campbell but few would have
heard of a more heinous massacre carried out by the Campbells at Dunoon, on the very doorstep of Lowland Scotland.
