Foulis Castle and Tulloch Castle

Foulis Castle lies four miles north-east of Dingwall. The present castle is a Georgian mansion house dating from the 1750s. It is built on the site of an earlier house which was destroyed by fire during the 1745 Jacobite Rising. Foulis Castle has been the family home of the Clan Munro since the 12th century.

Tulloch Castle is on the edge of Dingwall and dates from the 12th century. It was owned first by the Bains and then by the Clan Davidson. The last of the direct line of Davidsons at Tulloch died in 1917 and the castle was used as a hospital and as a hostel for Dingwall Academy. It was converted into a hotel in the late 1990s
