Fodor's Review

Beside Loch Assynt stands the striking ruined Ardvreck Castle, a onetime Clan MacLeod stronghold built in the late 1500s. Still highly atmospheric, it sits on an outcrop with perfect views the length of Loch Assynt in both directions. Located off the A837, just over half a mile south of the junction with the A894, it's visible as you approach from either direction. You'll find a car park located directly opposite the ruins—you can park, take the muddy path down to a stony beach, and then walk along to the castle.
