lovely quiet walk from Fort William along the river and loch. It took about half an hour. A peaceful ruin with good information boards.

Yet another place not well marked or mentioned. I found it thru a chat with locals and a nice walk in the country side. It is history at your touch. You can walk amongst the ruins and enjoy your own thoughts on a time past.

Nice place to stop for a walk around. Some lovely scenery and photo opportunities. Not somewhere I would go out of my way to visit but I am glad we stopped on our way through l.

Lovely remains of a little castle next to the river, well wort a stop for half hour or so. But be warned there is nothing else there, no shops or cafes which makes a nice change :-D

having the opportunity to walk through the ruins. Directions and parking are both rather sparse and the one-way roadway is quite unclear.

Located just outside the city centre. Near the water, offerings excellent views of the surrounding scenery. Really loved the ruins and the feel they had, must have been quite Impressive. There is a small car park just around the corner, no entrance fee. Nice information boards.

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.

Whilst you may not expect any more, it is the shell only of the outer walls of the castle. Interesting enough in it's layout, you really won't spend more than 10 minutes looking around. I'd recommend more going through the castle and out on to the river at the back. That's quite picturesque. If you're passing, have a look, but... More

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.
