Lochindorb Castle

 

Lochindorb is located approximately 10 km northwest of Grantown-on-Spey. Lochindorb Castle sits on an island, about 300 metres east of the shore of Lochindorb.

The history of the castle makes for confusing reading, as it was under the control of many different factions before it was left to fall into ruin in the mid-1400s.

The main part of the castle dates from the 13th century, and was originally a stronghold of the Comyns. In 1303 the castle was captured by the English king Edward I during the Wars of Independence, who occupied it for a short time.

From 1372, the castle was under the ownership of Alexander Stewart, the Earl of Buchan, known as 'The Wolf of Badenoch'.

By 1455, the castle was occupied by Archibald Douglas, the Earl of Moray. Following Douglas's defeat in the same year, the castle came under the control of the Crown and orders were given for the castle to be dismantled. Since that time, the castle has fallen into ruin.
