Ardvreck Castle

Ardvreck Castle is a ruined fortress on a small promontory of land jutting out into Loch Assynt in Sutherland, Scotland.

Located under the brooding bulk of Quinag, Ardvreck Castle was the traditional seat of the MacLeods of Assynt.

Ardvreck Castle, Sutherland, Scotland.

Ardvreck Castle was built by Angus Mor III in the late 15th century. The promontory is sometimes cut off by high water, leaving Ardvreck on its very own island.

Like all good British castles, Ardvreck Castle is supposedly haunted - by two ghosts.

Ardvreck Castle is 11 miles east of the village of Lochniver and easily accessible from the North Coast 500 highway, which opened in 2015.
