Kisimul Castle is a small medieval castle located on the small island off Barra, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. It gets its name from the Gaelic "ciosamul" meaning "castle island".
Kisimul sits on a rocky islet in the bay just off the coast of Barra. As it is completely surrounded by the sea, it can only be reached by boat and is all but impregnable. Kisimul has its own fresh water wells. Legend has it that this has been the stronghold of the MacNeils since the 11th century.
