Old Inverlochy Castle at Fort William

Situated a mile (1.5 km) to the north of Fort William at the southern end of the Great Glen, Inverlochy Castle was built by the Comyn family and dates from the mid 13th century. It is one of the oldest stone castles in Scotland. Built as a square courtyard with round corner towers, it was also held by the Gordon clan. It now lies in a ruinous state but in the care of Historic Environment Scotland. A new castle was built nearby by James Scarlett, the 1st Lord Abinger, in 1863.
