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

Excellent castle ruins to visit and walk around in. As with many other ruins in Scotland, there is no fee.

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

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