    Keiss Castle Information

    Keiss Castle, which is now partially ruined, is located less than 1 mile north of Keiss village, on sheer cliffs, overlooking Sinclair’s Bay.

    The castle was constructed as a Z-plan tower house with 4 floors plus an attic and a vaulted basement. It had a pair of corner towers at opposite angles of a square central block, the main tower being very narrow for its height with tall chimney stacks.

    The Sinclairs replaced the castle as the family seat with Keiss House replaced Keiss Castle around 1755.
