Armadale Castle

Armadale Castle is ruined stately home in Armadale on the Isle of Skye.

The castle was built in 1815 in Scottish baronial style, more designed for show than defence. Part of the building was destroyed by fire in 1855 and a central wing was then rebuilt in its place.

Owned originally by the MacDonald family, they abandoned Armadale Castle in 1925 and it has since fallen into ruin. Visitors, however, can tour round the magnificent 40 acres of castle gardens which are maintained by the Clan Donald Centre. There are also a number of woodland walks and nature trails which showcase the gardens’ beauty.

The Armadale Castle gardens are open throughout the year and entry is free during the winter months. At the Clan Donald Centre you’ll find plentiful parking, a gift shop and a restaurant.
