Caisteal Bharraich Castle Varrich

Dramatic ruin visible from Tongue in the Far North. You can walk across and back for a drink in a local bar. The castle is located on a prominent rise overlooking the Kyle of Tongue,


This was the ancient seat of Clan Mackay and may date bck as much as 1000 years. It was built in the 1400s, possibly over a previous Norse fort.

It was occupied until the Mackays moved out to the nearby House of Tongue.

Today, it is a very picturesque ruin that can be walked to from the village and enjoys a wonderful spot for a picnic and the views
