Moy Castle

Isolated tower castle on south coast of Mull near Lochbuie overlooking the sea. In ruinous state but still impressive overlooking quiet and isolated sandy beach. Sea Eagles often nest in the hillside above the beach.


Moy Castle was built in the 15th century by Hector Reaganach Maclean, 1st Laird of Lochbuie, brother of Lachlan Lubanach Maclean of Duart. It was captured from the Macleans of Lochbuie by Clan Campbell, but later returned to the Macleans. It was abandoned in 1752 when a new house was built.

You can walk up to view but the structure is not safe. The beach to the south is lovely sandy beach with few visitors and safe for swimming. Keep an eye out for the sea eagles.
