    Caisteal Maol Information

    Caisteal Maol or Castle Moal is a ruined castle situated on a headland above the village of Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye. From here you can look out across the strait to the Kyle of Lochalsh.

    The castle is a three-storey construction and visitors can stroll through most parts of the building. The basement, believed to have been the kitchen, is full of rubble. It’s understood Castle Moal was built in the late 15th century and is the ancient seat of the Mackinnon clan. Last occupied in 1600, the castle gradually fell into ruin over the years, and storm damage in 1949 and 1989 further caused the castle to crumble. It is now safe to walk through the remaining parts of the castle as the ruins have been secured.

    Reach Caisteal Moal by parking in the village of Kyleakin’s main car park and taking the short gravel path up the hill. Enjoy the spectacular views from the top!
