Knock Castle, Sleat, Skye

Knock Castle, or Caisteal Camus, is on the east coast of the Sleat peninsula on the Isle of Skye. It dates from the 14th century, was originally held by the MacLeods, until the second half of the 15th century when the MacDonalds took possession, before reverting to the MacLeods. The ruins of several construction periods of this small medieval castle still remain. The Castle was used as a quarry in 1834 when stone was taken to build the present house at Knock Farm
