Dalcross Castle
NH 779-483 Nairnshire Scotland

Dalcross Castle Dalcross Castle is an early 17th century stone L-plan tower house, founded by Simon Fraser, 8th Lord Lovat. Built on a commanding eminence overlooking the Moray Firth, the castle is of two offset three and five storey blocks, with a projecting square stair-tower in the re-entrant angle. In the early 18th century, the Macintoshes added a northern two storey wing, which was altered in an Arts and Crafts style by Carruthers, a local architect. A marshalling point for Hanoverian troops prior to the Battle of Culloden, the castle later became an abandoned ruin until it was restored back into a dwelling house, in the late 19th century. 2 miles south is Cantraydoune and 9 miles west is Inverness Castle.
