Visited the castle on our way back to Glenfinnan, just the ruins of a castle and not much else to look at the info boards don't give you many details of the history of the place, which is a shame because i looked into the history of it later and you could make so much more from the site.

Lovely little walk around the castle ruins and down along the river. Parking is iffy but free and it is a good place to stretch your legs if you have been in a car for a bit of time.

It's free what's not to like, it's a great photo opera unity and an ideal way to spend a wet day if you can't get into the hills. The history is interesting and it's worth a visit to look about and get to know a little more history of the area.

A Castle ruins situated close to a river and easy to get to. When I visited, I was the only one there. It is easy to get to and information boards tell the story of those who inhabited the castle and visited it throughout it's long history. The paths are fairly flat so even those who find it difficult walking... More

So close to town, it was amazing to touch the walls of this castle built in 1203 amazing to think how old they were. In a lovely position on the banks of a loch.

A nice little castle ruin to visit for free. There are boards which tell you the history of the castle, which set on the banks of the Loch in a nice location.

Inverlochy castle, the old 13th century one, is a must see for anyone travelling in the Ft. William area. It is true castle without any of the tourist traps that seem to come with many such sites. If I can suggest one thing to my fellow travellers, go early in the morning and hopefully you can experience the old castle... More
