We were pleasantly surprised when we visited the quite charming castle set in lovely surroundings. Plenty to see to fire the imagination of both adults and children with good information panels to explain its history. Also worth going into Fort William to have a look around the old Fort.

We stopped here with a tour even though it was not on the itinerary and we were so glad that we did. Even though we were only there for 20 minutes it was well worth it. Inverlochy Castle is a great place to walk through the ruins, have a picnic and enjoy the river and scenery. Simply beautiful.

It was lovely to stumble upon the castle on a walk into Fort Williams. Great views surrounding the castle. It is situated in a lovely area just outside the town. I could imagine the locals walking their dogs so blissfully having such magical scenery and a fabulous historical building to gaze at along the way.

A lovely half hour walk along the river from Fort William brings you to the ruins. Very interesting history and nice views over the river.

What a little gem, we spent some time here, it was far better than we thought it was going to be. It is kept in really good condition and on a lovely sunny day and there were not too many people there so we had time to read the information boards at our leisure and take our time looking around....

Visited the Castle on a beautiful warm Sunny day. The boards were informative and explained how castle would have been back in the days when it was a stronghold, it was very busy with foreign tourists who had arrived on a coach who all seemed to have a keen interest

I spent a good hour wandering around this castle back in February this year. You can park near the entrance and don't have to pay to get in. There's also lot's of things to take photos of which I liked.

Visited here from Fort william and is only a two minute drive. Parking is free as is the entrance. The ruins are fantastic to walk around and up and close to. Lots of information boards about the history and also about how it use to look so you can get a feeling of how it might have looked.

While driving from Glasgow to Fort Augustus we saw the brown tourist signs for Inverlochy Castle. I searched trip advisor to see what what others had to say about it. The idea of a free outing (as a family of 5 and traveling with an additional family member, my mom) free is always a good thing. The next day we... More

Hard to believe that, after so many centuries, this lovely building still stands, although not totally. It was interesting to climb around inside the castle and imagine what life used to be like. Don't miss it!
