Bannerman's Castle Collapse
In December 2009, a significant portion of Bannerman's Castle's main tower collapsed. I visited with fellow ruin-enthusiast Rob Yasinsac on a bitterly cold winter day in January 2010 and got these pictures from the mainland.
There's a huge piece missing from the main tower (built in 1909), making the entire structure dangerously unstable. Every year, these structures crumble a bit more and are at risk of collapsing because there isn't enough money to preserve them. You can help by donating to the Bannerman's Castle Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to stabilizing and maintaining the castle buildings on the island.
