Highland - Badenoch & Strathspey

Castle Roy is reported to be the oldest masonry fortification in Scotland, dating from 1200 (MacGibbon and Ross 1872-1914) and is a very rare example of an unaltered building of its type.  it will remain the most accessible fortress when it opens to the public.

The site is currently undergoing a consolidation that has lasted over 24 years.  However the end is in sight and the Castle Roy Trust is keen to open its doors, show the work being carried out and explain its history.

As a building site visits have to be supervised, but all are weclome including children and dogs.  For 2018 you will also have an opportunity to meet the Castle's latest resident, Murdo the "Highland Coo".
