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

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.
