Kinlochaline Castle and bridge

Kinlochaline Castle stands at the head of Loch Aline overlooking the Sound of Mull. It was built in the 15th century as a square turreted tower. The walls were approximately 10ft thick and had the capacity for defence using boiling oil. It was owned by the Clan MacInnes but was burnt down during the campaigns of the 1st Marquis of Huntly in the 17th century.

The castle has recently been restored and is now a private residence.
