Situated at the head of Loch Aline, Morvern, Kinlochaline castle has been recently renovated (in the 1990s) and turned into a private dwelling, the castle had been a shell since it was sacked in 1644 by Coll Kitto of Colonsay. The castle was built in the 12th century and the Clan McInnes were the keepers of the building.
The original castle was in a strategic position high a rocky mount overlooking Loch Aline and its walls were thick and built with huge stones. The ramparts were defended by stone chutes for pouring boiling oil on any who tried to scale them. Although access is not available it is still an interesting and beautiful place to see, particularly if you are in the area and on your way to visit Ardtornish Castle a couple of miles away which was strategic in the defence of the Sound of Mull
