Old Inverlochy Castle

Old Inverlochy Castle

The castle is picturesquely situated on the banks of the River Lochy, just a mile from the town centre.  Built in the 1200’s by the Comyns of Badenoch as they sought to expand their own power base in the lowlands.  It has passed through a number of hands over the centuries, usually by force.  The Comyns fell victim to Robert the Bruce’s royal ambitions who passed it on to his supporters.  Free entry.
