Duntulm Castle (Inner Hebrides)

  • Information

    Duntulm Castle is a ruin near the hamlet of Duntulm on the north coast of Trotternish on the Isle of Skye.

    Built in the 14th and 15th centuries, the castle was first the seat of the Macleod clan and then passed, most likely by force, to the MacDonald clan. Duntulm Castle was abandoned in 1732 when the then Macdonald clan chief built a new property 5 miles away and used much of the castle’s stone for building material.

    Much of the castle is in a poor condition and stones do continue to crumble away. You can walk along the coastal path to the castle ruins but several signs will advise you that exploring the ruins is at your own risk due to unsecured masonry.
