Castle Roy is an 12th century fortress built by the Clan Comyn on a small glacial mound to the north of the modern village of Nethy Bridge. In 1420 the whole area came under the stewardship of the Clan Grant who are still the clan of this area today. The castle is a simple, irregular 4 sided stronghold which has been largely unaltered over the centuries and is one of the oldest unchanged castles of its type in Scotland.

There is plenty of parking but it can be busy at times. The site is now owned by a local trust who have carried substantial works to preserve the Castle, as it stands for future generations and to maintain it as a free, all abilities, visitor and education centre. As such, if you visit please feel free to take some change and make a wee donation for their efforts. Although permission was not needed I asked anyway, it meant I could fly from the site instead of the car park. The steward on site was very helpful and enthusiastic, I was told to go ahead and fill my boots, sometimes it pays to ask.
Land owner permission obtained.
