This castle originally belonged to the Comyns of Badenoch. It was constructed in the 13th century, however the Comyns were destroyed by Robert the Bruce around 1308 and the castle went to the Gordons of Huntly.
It has very simple layout, a square courtyard with a tower at each corner. The castle is fairly ruined and a modern castle was constructed nearby under the same name. The newer Inverlochy Castle is a hotel now.
