Popped by Inverlochy Castle on our was from Fort William to Glenfinnan. The site looked like it was under some sort of stabilisation repair. There are no guides or any tours, it's not big enough for that. There are a couple of information boards though. The site is also beside some sort works and the chaps that work there weren't...

My husband and I stumbled on Inverlochy castle on a trip to Port Williams to buy an extra suitcase for all our purchases! We saw a sign for it and decided to check it out. There is not much left of the castle interior and the towers do not have much left in them. One was entirely closed off, but... More

These are ruins and there's not a lot to them. Nice walks around it and beside the river. Worth an hour or two.

We stopped off on the way through on our bikes. You can go inside and climb on some of it. The stuff that is there is really interesting, though there is not a lot left. There are also signs to explain it. It doesn't cost anything.

This isn't for everyone....it is truly a ruin. Just crumbling outer walls still standing. But I prefer this kind of castle to the refurbished, fancied up ones...anyway, just on the edge of Ft William, sitting by itself in a field, sits what's left of Inverlochy Castle, and it's been there since the 13th century.

When I visited it had just started raining and I had taken the bus that goes past the area. The history is interesting from reading the boards that are around the castle but it lacked something that would make me recommend this as a must see site. It is also a bit out of the way if you are using... More

Since there are 2 Inverlochy Castles, not sure if this is the correct spot for this! The Castle remains on the shores of the River Lochy are in quite good shape considering the battles that took place nearby. The curtain walls are in wonderful condition and all four turrets are still mostly in place. All in all a worthwhile stop... More

Not very well preserved but deserves a stop over to walk around. Fantastic location, a very simple castle, would need some more restoration
