Entre las construcciones que de él se conservan se encuentran las murallas exteriores, torre y casamata originales y en el interior hay un museo dedicado a los highlanders británicos.
Castle Stalker sits on a small island in Loch Laich, an inlet of Loch Linnhe. The name comes from the gaelic "stalcaire", meaning "falconer", and there has been a fortified building of some sort since the early 14th century. It acquired its present form at about the end of the 14th century and is regarded as one of the best preserved medieval tower houses. Its history reflects the violence and feuding of the highland clans, especially the Campbells, Macdonalds, Stewarts and McLeans. By the time of the Jacobite rebellions in the 18th century it was in the hands of the Campbells and held out against a much stronger rebel force. It was abandoned in the 19th century but bought back by the Stewart family who restored it to a habitable state and still own it.
Its picturesque setting has meant it is much photographed and it has appeared in films, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Highlander: Endgame
