Invergarry Castle stands about half a mile east of Invergarry on the shores of Loch Oich, Inverness-shire.

The castle dates from the early 17th century when it was built as a stronghold of the MacDonnell clan. It was burned by General Monck in 1654 but was rebuilt and fortified. It changed hands during the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion and was visited by Bonnie Prince Charlie during the 1745 Rebellion. In 1746, the castle was destroyed by the Duke of Cumberland's forces and was never rebuilt.
